Re: Help with Mac OS X install

So duhh....I had been working in a directory where I didn't have 
permission to work without root. So forget what I said about sudo. Oh 
well. But this is what I get when trying to do ./configure:

checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... cc
checking for C compiler default output... configure: error: C compiler 
cannot create executables

so why does it come up "no" when looking for gcc, I wonder?
