[Mailman-Users] mailman install problem

Thanks for you help, guys. Actually, I checked the Makefile in
/usr/local/mailman (my $prefix), and /usr/local/mailman/src/Makefile and
they both have CC= gcc. I have deleted the Makefiles, config.cache &
config.status, rerun ./configure (my specific options are --prefix,
--with-cgi-gid, --with-mailhost and --with-urlhost) and re-run make and
make install. I keep getting the error on make install. For laughs,
since I saw the Makefile had the full path in the PYTHON= line, I put
the full path to gcc in the CC= line, re-ran configure and it still

Did you rerun configure (not just config.status) after making those

If all else fails, look at src/Makefile in the directory in which you
are running make and find the CC= line (which probably says 'CC= cc')
and change it to 'CC= gcc'.
