Subject: [OMPI users] configuration openMPI problem

dear all,
I am new in openMPI world and in general in parallelization. I have some
problem with configuration of openMPI in my laptop.
I have read your FAQ and I tried to google the problem but I was not able
to solve it.
The problem is:

I have downloaded the openmpi-1.6.3, unpacked it
Then I have installed on my pc intel icc and icpc.
when I run:
./configure CC=icc CXX=icpc F77=ifort FC=ifort

I get:

*** Startup tests
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking target system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... icc
checking whether the C compiler works... no
configure: error: in `/home/diedro/Downloads/openmpi-1.6.3':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details
diedro_at_diedro-Latitude-E6420:~/Desktop/Downloads/openmpi-1.6.3$

I do no understand why. I did a simple hello project with icc and it works.
(in attachment you can fiend the config.log)

Really thanks for any help.

Diego
