libmtp compilation error


I'm trying to compile libmtp0.0.3 on ubuntu dapper:
compilation stops with the error:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
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 encounter similar errors when using different gcc versions

Here is the config.log file:

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by libmtp configure 0.0.3, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59. Invocation command line was

$ ./configure

I have installed libc6 (and libc6-dev) which I think is equivalent.

Bump

I hope bumping a thread like this isn't considered too rude.
