What's the output of »gcc --verbose --version« ? And what's the output
»rpm -qa | grep -F gcc«?


When I can reproduce the error (from a fresh login the above doesn't
only from
env -i sh
or env -i dash
(but from a fresh login, Configure doesn't work correctly ...)

I don't know what a "fresh login" means, but your gcc problem comes from the
env -i, something about $PWD

Actually it seems to be a problem with $PATH, for some reason gcc is not
inheriting it, so it looks for its binary with a search path of .

stop doing env -i

This is still true. It is a silly thing


env -i dash
cd /usr/bin

export PATH

gcc --verbose --version

I suspect the point is that the shell variable you get when you do echo $PATH
is not a part of the environment and so doesn't get inherited on execve() -
if you do env instead of echo $PATH you can see what your inheritable
environment looks like. By explicitly doing the export you put it into the
environment and so it gets inherited.

To sum up: stop doing env -i
