I recently found a similar "infelicity" with 7.1.4 on RH8, resulting
from the fact that modern versions of gcc generate multiple lines of
output from gcc -v, whereas the configure script expects only one.
This leads to quite spectacular breakage of the compile process, as
configure gets very confused...
