Hi,

I try to configure expect-5.38 on my GNU/Linux system,
but I got :

[...]
configuring in testsuite
running /bin/sh ./configure --enable-threads
--enable-symbols --enable-shared --enable-gcc
--with-tclinclude=/tmp/tcl8.4.1/generic
--with-tkinclude=/tmp/tk8.4.1/generic
--cache-file=.././config.cache --srcdir=.
loading cache .././config.cache
checking for Tcl configuration... (cached) found
/tmp/tcl8.4.1/unix/tclConfig.sh
checking Tcl build library... -L/tmp/tcl8.4.1/unix
-ltcl8.4 -ldl -lpthread -lieee -lm
checking for Tcl_CreateCommand... (cached) yes
checking if Tcl library build specification is valid... yes
checking for gcc... (cached) $gcc -s -pipe
checking whether the C compiler ($gcc -s -pipe -O3
-march=i686 -L/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1/lib -lpthread)
works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration
problem: C compiler cannot create executables.
configure: error: ./configure failed for testsuite

It would be great if you could help me with this !

Best regards,

Pierre.

    I have exactly the same error with expect 5.39.0

    Upon investigation, this turned out to be a misconfigured
    tclConfig.h file.
