See `config.log' for more details.

newbie here, i get the basic concept of tar, configure, make, install, but some installs dont want to go through config i get a compile error, any ideas? this happens to most of my installs not sure what im doing wrong..

could it be my pwd? ive tried both of these?

im using redhat 8, and from what i can see im guessing its an installation package i failed to install? maybe a link or reference so i can install it from the cd?

You will have to install the development suite from the RedHat CD.
Use the rpm to install gcc-x.x. it all it's dependencies, or use your package
