I tried to install PostgreSQL without success.

At the beginning I wrote:
./ipc-daemon --install-as-service
net start ipc-daemon
the computer correctly answer:
The Cygwin IPC Daemon service is starting.
The Cygwin IPC Daemon service was started
successfully.

Now if I try to configure PostgreSQL a bug occurs.

If I write:
./configure
the computer answer:
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-cygwin
checking which template to use... win
checking whether to build with locale support... no
checking whether to build with recode support... no
checking whether to build with multibyte character
support... no
checking whether to build with Unicode conversion
support... no
checking for default port number... 5432

checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) works... yes

checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
using CFLAGS=-O2
checking whether the C compiler (gcc -O2 ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration
problem: C compiler cannot creat
e executables.

and then it stops. I don't understand why because 
cygipc runs, doesn't it?

the .log file contains:
This file contains any messages produced by compilers
while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes
a mistake.

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:

#line 1360 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

main(){return(0);}


 
Have you any ideas why it happens?

Many thanks, best regards,

Giuliano Castelli.
