Checked in the config.log file as suggested and it basically said that it
couldn't find egcs.
Knowing that it is there cos I just installed it, I then discover that it
is named /usr/cin/compat-egcs, so I symlinked it as /usr/bin/egcs.
That got me past the first barf but another one occured a few lines
later. It then couldn't find the cc1plus file. Well although there are
two of these files, the one in the gcc-c++ package on distro CD1 is not
the one it was looking for. The one it wanted was in the egcs-c++ package
on distro CD2.
Looks like Mandrake haven't _quite_ got it right yet.
Anyway sluggers, park that somewhere for future reference.
