Description of problem:
Upgraded from FC 1 to FC 2.  Tried to compile two programs that have 
compiled on FC 1 (Grass GIS 5.7 and SynCE 0.8).  Both fail with 
message: C compiler cannot create executables.  Upon examination of 
config.log, both programs list the following: /usr/local/bin/ld: 
unrecognized option '--as-needed'

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Type ./configure (options as needed) in source directory 

Additional info:

Configure Results:
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler 

configure:829: checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) works
configure:845: gcc -o conftest    conftest.c  1>&5
/usr/local/bin/ld: unrecognized option '--as-needed'
/usr/local/bin/ld: use the --help option for usage information
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:

#line 840 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2004-06-26 02:50:17 EDT
Move away /usr/local/bin/ld.  It is not part of the distribution and
GCC relies on various binutils features that are Required by the
gcc rpms.  /usr/bin/ld should be used.
Alternatively, if you really for some weird reason must use a custom
ld, you must take care of rebuilding it so that it will support all
the required features.
