    Hi ,
    I am compiling gcc 3.4.6 from source in RHEL 5 (this has gcc 4.1.2 )
    I downloed all dependencies and started ./configure.
    It went fine.
    When I do make I get following error that cannot run C compiled programs.


    checking for C compiler default output file name... b.out
    checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.
    If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
    See `config.log' for more details.
    make: *** [configure-gcc] Error 1

    It is typical error in absence of the execution rights on file system.
    Usually it is the tmp dir. Try to remount as follows

    mount -o,remount,rw,exec /var/tmp
