configure gcc compiler problem

Hi all,

I have encountered a problem for which I cannot find a suitable answer
in the archives. I am trying to compile GRASS5.0.0pre5 from its source
code and get the following response:

[tdewez@PINNACLES ...grass5sources/grass5.0.0pre5]$ ./configure
checking host system type... i686-pc-cygwin
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler =
cannot create executables.

I found somewhere it was possibly related to a path issue. Being not
fully familiar with Unix I a little confused as to where things should
be. In the home directory I typed the following:

$ which gcc
$ echo $PATH
Program Files/Common Files/Adaptec

/usr/bin is obviously in the path so something different must be occuring.

The config.log contains the following:

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

configure:680: checking host system type
configure:703: checking for gcc
configure:807: checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) works
configure:823: gcc -o conftest    conftest.c  1>&5
configure: failed program was:

#line 818 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"


This means very little to me, could anyone help with this? By the way, I
work mostly with tcsh and cannot find a .cshrc file in my home
directory. Where is the path hiding?
