I'm not sure if this is a linking error or a GCC error, and it's system-wide. I'm not sure when exactly it introduced - but it impacts anything where you have to "configure" first.
This bit shows up on EVERY config.log that gets spit out
checking for gcc... gcc

ld: crtbegin.o: No such file: No such file or directory
configure: failed program was:
I wasn't planning to upgrade yet (more like the end of summer), so if there's a solution that doesn't involve wiping and reinstalling, I'll be thrilled.
