I am at glibc compilation (chapter 6 of CVS version)

When I do

../glibc-2.3.1/configure --prefix=/usr \
    --disable-profile --enable-add-ons \

I got the following :

loading cache ./config.cache

configure: error:
*** These critical programs are missing or too old: gcc
*** Check the INSTALL file for required versions.

However if I check gcc in /static/bin I have :

I have no name!:/static/bin# ls -l /static/bin/gcc
-rwxr-xr-x    2 0        0           93488 Jan  3 23:35 /static/bin/gcc

What is wrong? Have you any clue?

Thank you in advance
