Description of problem:
I'm trying to install mozilla-1.0.1-24.src.rpm on my system (mostly redhat 7.1)
and I get:

[ preceding lines cut ]
+ ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-optimize --disable-debug

configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot
create executables.
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.6575 (%build)


RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.6575 (%build)

However, if I then go directly to /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/mozilla and start
configure manually (with the same switches as above), it completes
successfully.  There is nothing wrong with gcc that I can see; I've built plenty
of other sources and a few SRPMS with it with no trouble at all.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --rebuild mozilla-1.0.1-24.src.rpm


Actual Results:  configure complains that gcc doesn't work.

Expected Results:  configure should run successfully.

That's not supported with that rpm spec file.
