Compiling INN 2.2.2 on Redhat 6.1 SMP

Thanks for the reply Forrest...

My output is as follows:

[root at cust5 billybob]# gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/egcs-2.91.66/specs
gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)
[root at cust5 billybob]#

If you run config.guess on a single CPU system, I get the following:

[gdo at squid2 inn-2.2.2]$ ./config.guess

On a system with dual CPU's, I get NO response.

Forcing to a --host=i668-pc-linux-gnu during the configure process, I go
from a "can't guess host type" to C compiler doesn't work, can't write

I know this is a stupid question.  But do you have a working gcc

I happened to notice this during a recent install for someone else
on a new system.

INN configure ends up testing for gcc after configure.guess already
needed it.  And the error messages are not very helpful.

So, what's the output of gcc -v?
