Error ./Configure GCC 3.4.4

Hello all.

I'm just new to this forum. I recently Installed slackware 10.1, with as little software as possible. I only installed the kernel, with the develloper tools and some compilers. This went all quite okay. I downloaded the x-server as a tarball, and installing this was'nt a problem.
But now, as I try to Compile the gcc 3.4.4. compiler, my system give's me the following errormessage :

- You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.

The gcc that came with linux itself was able to compile the packages for x, but for some reason if I run the configure shell script It doesn't work.
I also added the line 'CC=/usr/bin/gcc' to my environment variables, but this results still in the same errormessage. I also downloaded a gcc 3.x.x compressed binarie, but I dont want to install any binaries, actually, so I still haven't done this.

Have you added that to the $PATH?

wihch cc

amd try:
which gcc

The command you added looks correct. Try using the installpkg utility by Slackware or download slackpkg and use that to install GCC. I've had that error in the past before and this solved the problem for me.
