Compile/Configure Apache 1.3.31 problem without error message

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hello out there!

I am trying to compile the recent Apache HTTPD 1.3.31 on my small home
server (Athlon 750 MHz, 512 MB RAM, 8 GB HDD).
My problem is: Every simple ./configure (with none, more or less
parameters) is broken down at the sanity check without any visible
error message as you can see at most compile problems.
I tried it with SuSE 9.1 and with Fedora Core 2, always the same
Googling about it for 2 days, but I found nothing. Everyone with
compile problems seems to have more or less a kind of error message
here (like make not found, gcc error message). When I enter - just for
fun - the compile command for dummy.c on my own, GCC works and ends,
without any message.

I hope somebody can help me because I think this problem cannot be too
hard as the compiled Apache and other things at work on other machines
so often.

Here you see what I got on my last try (Fedora Core 2):

root@zoolserver apache_1.3.31]# ./configure
Configuring for Apache, Version 1.3.31
 + using installation path layout: Apache (config.layout)
Creating Makefile
Creating Configuration.apaci in src
Creating Makefile in src
 + configured for Linux platform
 + setting C compiler to gcc
 + setting C pre-processor to gcc -E
 + using "tr [a-z] [A-Z]" to uppercase
 + checking for system header files
 + adding selected modules
 + using builtin Expat
 + checking sizeof various data types
 + doing sanity check on compiler and options
** A test compilation with your Makefile configuration
** failed.  The below error output from the compilation
** test will give you an idea what is failing. Note that
** Apache requires an ANSI C Compiler, such as gcc.

======== Error Output for sanity check ========
cd ..; gcc  -DLINUX=22 -DUSE_HSREGEX -DUSE_EXPAT -I./lib/expat-lite
-DNO_DL_NEEDED `./apaci`     -o helpers/dummy helpers/dummy.c   -lm
============= End of Error Report =============


As already told, the result with other parameters or on SuSE 9.1 is
the same.

Thanks in advance and best regards,
