Common Fedora GCC problems
It seems all I had to do was mention Fedora a few times and I started getting technical support emails :). I'm still more of a FreeBSD guy, but I hope these help.
Problem 1: No GCC Installed
configure: error:no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
This happens if you're attempting to build a C application and you don't have the GNU Compiler Collection installed. Most likely this was because you installed Fedora using the Live CD which (I think, feel free to correct me) doesn't have it, but it's easy enough to install:
# yum install gcc
Problem 2: No GCC-C++ installed
configure: error:installation or configuration problemC++ compiler cannot create executables.
Similar problem as above:
# yum install gcc-c++
Problem 3: No grilled cheese sandwiches
% echo Grilled cheese sandwiches
