    My name is Einat, and I am applications engineer in the Silicon
    Valley. I have Ubuntu - GNU GRUB error, that I would be very very
    happy, if you may help me with. I am using GNU GRUB 0.97

Sorry, but this GRUB version is over 6 years old and we don't support it anymore. Please upgrade to modern version.

    in OS Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I got an error when I was in a process
    of building a boot loader stage 1. The “./configure” command
    failed with the error: “C compiler cannot create executables ”.
    The config.log file content indicate that “/usr/bin/ld: cannot
    find -lgcc ” and that “configure: failed program was: | /*
    confdefs.h. */”

    I installed multiple tools / SW including:
    - GCC 4:4.4.3-1ubuntu1 (GNC Complier).
    - Automake 1:1.11.1-1 (tool for generating GNUS standards
    compliant makefiles).
    - binutils 2.20.1-3 ubuntu7.1 (GNU Assembler, Linker and binary
    - aoutoconf 2.65-3 ubuntu1 (automatic configure script builder).
    - texinfo 4.13a.dfsg.1-5ubuntu1 (documentation system for an
    on-line information and printed output).

I issued the following steps:
_ <>_ (grab the GRUB 0.97 from the web)
            zcat grub-0.97.tar.gz | tar xv (unbundle GRUB)
            cd grub-0.97
