Hi folks,

I'm trying to build postgres 7.1.1 (or 7.1.2) on Windows NTW4SP6 using the 
latest cygwin.  The machine I am compiling on has a dual processor, PIII 
configuration.

In the very first step, ./configure errors out!

>using CFLAGS=-O2
>checking whether the C compiler (gcc -O2 ) works... no
>configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot 
>create executables.

This is using gcc version 2.95.3-4 (cygwin special).  The exact same 
problem occurs with postgres 7.1.2

Having never seen configure die like this, I am not sure what to do....

Is this a problem in the ./configure script (and if so what can I do), or 
is this a problem with gcc (???) as the configure script would claim?

Where is this problem best reported?  Here on the cygwin digest, or 
somewhere in postgres land?

Thank you,

Jerry Asher

P.S.  The complete configure output is here:
