Configure error

Hi all

I have just started to get this error when I am starting a new project thought 
the Kdevelop project menu item, but I have not altered anything ( but I did 
for some reason get a bad shutdown message when I had not shutdown 
incorrectly a couple of days ago but have done some programming after that 
thus I do not think this is the problem).  This is the error from kdevelop
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot 
create executables.

Below is full list of the output from the top part of the message screen for 
building the project.

I am using Mandrake 9.1 and Kdevelop 2.1.5

Thanks for any advice
