Grub: C compiler cannot create executables

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I'm currently running Fedora 11 64-bit and am trying to compile Grub. I've been following the install directions and upon running configure I receive the following output with error message: checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p checking for gawk... gawk checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no checking for gcc... gcc checking for gcc... (cached) gcc checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: in `/home/BigDragon/Download/GRUB/GRUB': configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables See `config.log' for more details. I've checked to make sure automake, autoconf, gcc, gcc-c++, binutils-devel, and glibc-devel are up to date. Posts on Ubuntu forums led me to check those specific packages. However, the problem persists. Any ideas what's wrong? Maybe I'm missing a package? Yes, I know I could download the package, but this is really supposed to be an education experience. I'm still new to Linux. At home I've had success with Ubuntu, but at college they use Fedora. I haven't encountered this before so any help is appreciated. Thanks! :) (HowTos)
