I'm trying to install Ruby 1.9.2 on CentOS 5.8. I've used yum to install 'Development Tools' and readline-devel. I then download the ruby tar file and unzipped it. But when I try to do a:
./configure
I get the following error message:
[ollie@devdataload ruby-1.9.2-p0]$ ./configure
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking target system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... no
configure: error: in `/home/ollie/ruby/ruby-1.9.2-p0':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.

I've also attached the config.log.
