Mike Kenyon (mike(at)davidaustinroses(dot)co(dot)uk) reports a bug with a severity of 2
The lower the number the more severe it is.

Short Description
Configure fails for SCO Openserver 5.0.5/gcc 2.7.2.3

Long Description
The configure program fails for SCO Openserver 5.0.5 running gcc 2.7.2.3 from SCO's "Skunkware 98" open license utility CD. The output from configure has been pasted into the example code box below.

The Skunkware version of gcc, for reasons best known to itself does not like the "-b elf" option, instead preferring "-melf". I was not able to modify the configure script as I couldn't find where this "-b elf" thing was beamed in from to fix it!

Sample Code
