I want to install hdf5 libraries for R and I get the same error as posted below whether I try install.packages("hdf5") from R command prompt or the command line installation below. I would appreciate if any one could help me on this.

[alamj_at_thor hdf5]$ ./configure --with-hdf5=/bluejay/apps/HDF5-1.6.6/x86_64 checking for gcc... gcc

checking for C compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
