Well, first I am sorry if I was not clear but my ultimate purpose is
not to compile gcc. All I want is a C compiler that actually runs.
I'd love to compile the latest gcc from source but that would require
a gcc binary that actually works - not my case. If I just happen to be
misusing it and it actually works somehow, then updating gcc is
definitely not a priority objective and all I care about is using it
to compile the stuff that has been shoveling dust on my hard drive for
some time already.
Now about the advice you gave me, I am not sure it applies. I mean,
we're talking here - as an exemple - of a source package which
includes a configure file and the other following:
ABOUT-NLS NEWS autogen.sh g10 scripts
AUTHORS PROJECTS checks gnupg.spec tools
BUGS README cipher include util
COPYING THANKS config.h.in intl zlib
ChangeLog TODO config.log keyserver
INSTALL VERSION configure m4
Makefile.am acinclude.m4 configure.ac mpi
Makefile.in aclocal.m4 doc po
Are you suggesting that for ANY program, configure should be ran from
a different folder than its source's? Or does your suggestion only
concerns gcc's source compiling? I tried moving the configure file
and, as could be expected, it gave error messages claiming it lacked
Now I really hope this makes it clearer somehow. I am most thankful
for the help already provided. As I am neither an IT professional nor
a Unix wizard, none of this looks very clear to me.
I'll be looking forward for your advice.
