i486-linux v. i486-unknown-linux

i486-linux v. i486-unknown-linux

After the configure script is run you can go into config.status and
change it from i?345o86-unknown-linux to i?345o86-linux.

1. HELP!!:/usr/i486-unknown-linux-gnulibc1/bin/ld: no input files

I just installed glibc-2.0.4.  I followed the HOWTO to the letter.

I tried a test compile and got the following results:

linux:/work/tmp# gcc -o hello hello.c
/usr/i486-unknown-linux-gnulibc1/bin/ld: no input files

evidently, gcc is not passing an object file or something to ld.  Gcc
will generate an object file, but ld won't link it:

linux:/work/tmp# gcc -c hello.c
linux:/work/tmp# ls
hello.c  hello.o
linux:/work/tmp# ld hello.o
ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; defaulting to 08048080
hello.o: In function `main':
hello.o(.text+0x9): undefined reference to `printf'

Does anyone have any ideas why this happens?

I am using Slakware 3.4, gcc

I need to get this working, because I have work I need to compile.
