i am attempting ot install ed (ch 06).
it fails on the first command, "./configure --prefix=/usr"
this is everything that happens between prompts:

root:/usr/src/ed-0.2#./configure --prefix=/usr

i found several other messages in the archives with similar errors, where configure can't find gnu c, and thinks i'm cross-compiling.
however, none of the others had the numerous "...command not found" errors.

as always, any help is greatly appreciated.
