Python not installing

From: Joshua Burshaw <jburshaw_at_cygnal.ca>

Hello,
I'm still having problems but I think I narrowed things down to the fact
that I forgot to install Python so I tried it and this is the problem I have
come across.

oh and again this is on a Sun System running Solaris8 on a sparc cpu.

[Python-2.3.3]$ ./configure
checking MACHDEP... sunos5
checking EXTRAPLATDIR...
checking for --without-gcc... no
checking for --with-cxx=<compiler>... no
checking for c++... c++
checking for C++ compiler default output... configure: error: C++ compiler
cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.

checking the config.log shows:

configure:1402: checking MACHDEP
configure:1510: result: sunos5
configure:1516: checking EXTRAPLATDIR
configure:1531: result:
configure:1544: checking for --without-gcc
configure:1593: result: no
configure:1599: checking for --with-cxx=<compiler>
configure:1620: result: no
configure:1639: checking for c++
configure:1655: found /opt/sfw/bin/c++
configure:1665: result: c++
configure:1706: checking for C++ compiler default output
configure:1709: c++ conftest.cc >&5
c++: installation problem, cannot exec `cpp0': No such file or directory
configure:1712: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| #line 1685 "configure"

now just from googling I found that it's caused by an older version of
binutil that is installed on the system, and now it looks like I can't
update that package due to the fact that somany other programs rely on that
one program.

any ideas if there is anything else I can do to maybe avoid this problem?

thanks for any help,
Josh
