i installed gcc via optware and whenever I try and run configure on a package I've downloaded I get :
checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for gawk... gawk checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no checking for g++... g++ checking for C++ compiler default output file name... configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
I can see from a quick search that quite a few people run into this problem but I've not seen anywhere where somebody has described how to fix it. My gut tells me it's just a configuration option.
Alternatively, can somebody explain how to cross compile for the mybook on either Mac OS X or Ubuntu?
