Re: orca 0.2.4 compiler log error

On Debian which is family of Ubuntu, I had to do:
apt-get install libc6-dev g++ gcc make
and not just apt-get install gcc.
Try that as I had a simelar error.

hi will,
I also forgot to mention that I had done a touch foo and then tried to do the ./configure and it still gave me that error.

Is it possible /home/churst/Desktop/orca is not writable by you?  Try
cd'ing to /home/churst/Desktop/orca and doing a "touch foo".  In
addition, does config.log give any insight?

  I just installed Ubuntu 5.10 on my laptop and I can't seem to get
orca to install. it keeps complaining the compiler will not compile.

here are the commands I typed:

cd /home/churst/Desktop/orca
./configure prefix=/usr
:error:C compiler cannot create executable
See config.log for mre details

Here are the things that it failed to check that were No.

checking for gawk ... no
Checking whether makesets $(MAKE) ... no
checking whether to enable maintainer - specific portions of
makefiles ... no
Checking for style of include used by make ... none
checking for C compiler default output filename ... configure:error:C
compiler can not create executables

what is going on here and what do i need to install to get orca to
compile correctly?
