Hi!

When ever I google how to compile a program, this is the instruction


Code:
tar xvjf file.bz2
cd file
./configure
make
su
make install
...which seems nice and dandy. However, when EVER I do it, this happens


Code:
~/System/PDFedit/pdfedit-0.4.5 $ ./configure
checking for g++... no
checking for c++... no
checking for gpp... no
checking for aCC... no
checking for CC... no
checking for cxx... no
checking for cc++... no
checking for cl.exe... no
checking for FCC... no
checking for KCC... no
checking for RCC... no
checking for xlC_r... no
checking for xlC... no
checking whether the C++ compiler works... no
configure: error: in `/home/ojkolsrud/System/PDFedit/pdfedit-0.4.5':
configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
I'm always missing a lot of dependencies or something. Now, I just installed g++ from the magical apt-get, and output now looks like this:

~/System/PDFedit/pdfedit-0.4.5 $ ./configure
