configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables

Hi,
   I've tried configuring TCL by following the 'How to compile TCL'
instructions at http://www.tcl.tk/doc/howto/compile.html. Problem
occured when I type ./configure. The output at the shell is like this
:

loading cache ./config.cache
checking for ranlib... (cached) ranlib
checking for gcc... (cached) cc
checking whether the C compiler (cc  ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler
cannot create executables

Please advise what to do.

Since it says "cached", my guess is that you are building from
sources that aren't "clean", that they have been used to build
on another system.  Don't do that.

The best way to build is to build outside the source dirs, with
different directories for each build-type and platform.  You
just call
	/path/to/tcl/unix/configure --with-options ...
	make
alternatively you can try a 'make distclean' where you tried
before and then do 'make'.

Hello; The Solaris environment is killing me... I wanted to install Midnight Commander but I saw that it needs to be compiled. To compile Midnight Commander I downloaded gtk but I couldn`t install gtk. Because it needed many other dependency packages. I downloaded other dependency packages and I couldn`t have installed even them. I am really very angry at the moment. Then I found something/script `pkg-get` from www.blaswave.org and run it. Pkg-get installed many things by downloading them somewhere from internet. Actually I don`t know where am I now? Because when I run ./configure to insta...

RE: Configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
The C Runtime libraries are missing or not in the PATH. The library crt1.o could not be found. Are you able to compile any 'C' program? If not, you need to reinstall the the C compiler (for linux). I ran into this issue on my Mac OS 10.3 system and fixed it by = reinstalling latest version of developer tools.

libgd ./configure says "C compiler cannot create executables"
Hi All, Just ran into an odd error that I can't seem to resolve after any amount of searching for answers. Tonight I've been doing some housecleaning, and installing new versions of various outdated libraries. After successfully upgrading libgd, I realized that I'd compiled it prior to upgrading libpng. So, I installed the latest libpng, then went to recompile libgd. Here's what I get: [root@host gd-2.0.33]# ./configure checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for gawk... no chec...
