Problems with gcc compiler

Hy everone!
I have an old SCO 5.x machine on which I want to install openssh. Since there was no GCC compiler installed I had to install that too. I'm not a programmer and not so familiar with SCO, so I have a couple of questions.
I did everything "by the book" as it says here:
Where can I obtain a Secure Shell (ssh) for OpenServer5/OpenServer6/UnixWare7?

Problems start here:
when I run: ./configure --without-x
I get following:
loading cache ./config.cache
checking distribution consistency... done
checking host system type... i586-pc-sco3.2v5.0.5
checking target system type... i586-pc-sco3.2v5.0.5
checking build system type... i586-pc-sco3.2v5.0.5
checking cached information... ok
checking for a BSD compatible install... ./install-sh -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... ./configure: make: not found
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking using purify... no
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc -g ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.

Now I'm stuck. I'm google-ing around but with no success at this point.

P.S. I don't know if this helps, but I read on SKunkware FAQ that all files from Skunkware ftp site should be downloaded in binary mode (pressing shift in browser before cklicking on a desired file). I din't download it that way. Could this, for some reason, be the problem.

Hi Veccinho,

As far I know its quite some work to do wat you want to do, but its do able, but you need as far I know the SCO Openserver Development Kit for it, with a valid license code, because you need the native SCO native C compiler to build the gcc compiler.
I've build gcc on SCO Openserver once, about a year ago.
Only with a valid license the SCO Openserver Development Kit does work, and produce executables, else it does not compile at all, and only then the native SCO C compiler can build the gcc C compiler.
Maybe its better to look if you can find the OpenSSH components as pre build volumes for SCO 5.05, that will save you the build work.
