Making GCC Compile Executables?


Hey,

I'm installing PHP and uhh.. when I type in ./configure

pentium:~/download/php-5.0.2# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

so obviously, i 'apt-get install gcc'.

Now, it's saying

pentium:~/download/php-5.0.2# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.

How would I allow GCC compiler ot create executables?
