gcc problems xubuntu 6.1

After a fresh install of the Xubuntu Edgy 6.1 beta, I tried to compile gaim's 2.0.0 beta 4. I get the following upon ./configure:

ben@lappy2:~/new/gaim-2.0.0beta4$ ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... mawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for sed... /bin/sed
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.

I've been trying to build beta4 since it came out over 24 hours ago. Anybody know what this is? Same thing happens building gaim beta 3.1.

make sure you installed the "build-essential" package.
