Problem with C compiler

Im trying to install some software using "./configure" , "make" , "make install". I have a problem when I do "./configure" The error is:
# ./configure
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

Im running Slackware 9 on a laptop with a minimal install. I only install packages A, D, and N. Thanks for the help.

what is the output of errors from the config.log file?
it looks like a case of missing C Library: Development Libraries and Header Files.
make sure you have the glibc-devel package installed matching your glibc version...this is the most common reason for this error..
