I am a newbie to Linux and Ubuntu (Gutsy Gibbon) is the first
distribution i´m using.

I am in a lot of trouble here. I want to compile PHP with Postres Plus
(by enterpriseDB) but I am getting error by GCC. This is what I get
after running the command:

sudo ./configure --with-pgsql=/opt/PostgresPlus/8.3AS/dbserver/lib

loading cache ./config.cache
checking for Cygwin environment... no
checking for mingw32 environment... no
checking for egrep... grep -E
checking for a sed that does not truncate output... /bin/sed
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler
cannot create executables.

Has anyone done this before... Please help! I am in trouble here.

Thank you

Rashid Aslam.
