Sorry if this question has been done to death, but I am
really stuck here.
On many ordinary open source packages I try to install
I get the following error:
checking for C compiler default output... cat: conftest.c: No such file or directory
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
configure: exit 0
gcc2: conftest.c: No such file or directory
gcc2: No input files
My permissions are a-ok.
Delving into configure and placing various debuging
echo's and ls's I see that somehow the conftest.c file
is being deleted just before the gcc exectues. I pushed
further by commenting most rm commands in the configure
script itself and got much much further.
Can anyone explain why I might be seeing this? It is
obviously not a compiler error, but I'm not really sure
where else I can look?
