ANSI C header files

Hi Marco.

In my case I'm trying to install the 'grib_api' package from source
(grib_api-1.9.9.tar.gz) found at
http://www.ecmwf.int/products/data/software/download/grib_api.html

After unpacking the tar-ball you're supposed to run 'configure' before
installing but 'configure' hangs on "checking for ANSI C header
files..." 

Regards,
Kare

The output looks like this:

$ ./configure --prefix=/user/kare/software/ecmwf/lib
