problems compiling with Kdevelop

Newbie question alert!

When trying to compile a C++ program using Kdevelop i get the following error:-

checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking for C++ compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
*** Exited with status: 77 ***

I have no such problems with Anjuta but would prefer to use Kdevelop. I've noticed that Kdevelop compiles with the C++ compiler whereas Anjuta refers to the compiler as g++, is this the problem and how can i change the setting in Kdevelop.

ls -l `which c++`
will tell you that those two compilers are one and the same
by a different name.

Often an environment setting regarding compiler or linker
flags can cause the configure scripts test to fail, check the
output of env on your system, and check whether you've
got something set/turned on within KDevelop; if yes, see
what happens if you disable/unset it.
