ANSI C Compiler needed when compiling Apache

Posted on 1999-07-20

Last Modified: 2010-04-20
I've been trying to recompile Apache so that I can have roaming access support for Netscape. Whenever I try to "./configure", it tells me at the end that I need an ANSI C Compiler like GCC. I have egcs installed (from RedHat 6.0), and doesn't egcs include gcc?

Type 'which gcc' to see where your gcc executable is (and post the result back). 'egcs' isn't quite the same as gcc. In Redhat5.?, egcs was installed for C++ compiling, but I've got a feeling that gcc was still used for C compilation.

Have a look in the package manager and see what you've got installed under C/C++ development. Look at the libraries and compilers and also have a look on the CDROM and see what else there could be to install.

Get back when you've got a bit more info

which gcc gave me:

In GnoRPM I found these relevant files under Development/Languages:
compat-egcs-c++ 5.2-1.0.3a.1
compat-egcs       5.2-1.0.3a.1
egcs-c++       1.1.2-12
egcs             1.1.2-12
