I have a problem with GCC I try to compile Wine 1.7.26.

When I use the ./configure command I get an error: C compiler cannot create executables See `config.log' for more details

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

It was created by Wine configure 1.7.26, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.69.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure

Anyone know what to do to solve this?

  • I found this link Hope it is useful. – Lety Sep 8 '14 at 17:23
  • What happens if you run PATH="/usr/bin:$PATH" ./configure instead? – Salem Sep 8 '14 at 20:23

The key error message is this one:

/usr/bin/ld: this linker was not configured to use sysroots

That indicates a mismatch between gcc & ld.

You probably need to install an updated version of binutils (being the package that normally contains /usr/bin/ld), to match the version of gcc you're using.
