I cannot even run ./configure, neither as root, nor as user. Result is
'Permission denied'.

Both root/user can run it as: sh ./configure

In both the cases the output is identical. I am quoting the whole thing:

sh ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles...
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C
compiled programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
See `config.log' for more details.


The config.log also giving something like this:

/usr/bin/uname -p = unknown
/bin/uname -X     = unknown

/bin/arch              = i686
/usr/bin/arch -k       = unknown
/usr/convex/getsysinfo = unknown
hostinfo               = unknown
/bin/machine           = unknown
/usr/bin/oslevel       = unknown
/bin/universe          = unknown


This first line, /usr/bin/uname is actually /bin/uname

Is this the source of all trouble? Some non-standard file placing in F7,
or something in gcc has got corrupted? 

Thank you for trying to help.
