Re: Problem building OpenSSH

Hi All...

Its looking for conftest, but I don't see one anywhere. Where should I find 

configure:1022: PATH=".;."; not found
configure:1025: $? = 127
configure:1079: checking for gcc
configure:1094: found /usr/bin/gcc
configure:1102: result: gcc
configure:1330: checking for C compiler version
configure:1333: gcc --version </dev/null >&5
configure:1336: $? = 0
configure:1338: gcc -v </dev/null >&5
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/2.95.3-5/specs
gcc version 2.95.3-5 (cygwin special)
configure:1341: $? = 0
configure:1343: gcc -V </dev/null >&5
gcc: argument to `-V' is missing
configure:1346: $? = 1
configure:1372: checking for C compiler default output
configure:1375: gcc    conftest.c  >&5
configure:1378: $? = 0
configure:1407: result: a.exe
configure:1412: checking whether the C compiler works
configure:1418: ./a.exe
./a.exe: not found
configure:1421: $? = 127
configure:1428: error: cannot run C compiled programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
