I ran a configure to install wxWidgets and i get this

checking whether the C++ compiler (c++ ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C++ compiler cannot cre ate executables.

I am runing GCC 3.3.3

It may be that it is trying to execute 'c++'. On my system /usr/bin/c++ is a symlink to /etc/alternatives/c++ which is itself a symlink to /usr/bin/g++-3.3.2. You may have the g++ executable but just need to symlink it to c++.
