gcc and GNU make
OS: Solaris 8
Trying to install PHP and MySQL
I am told that I need the following tools installed on my system.
Perl (preferably the newest version)
gzip or gunzip
gcc and GNU make
I know that Perl is installed and I know that gunzip is installed.
Now how do I find out if I have gcc and GNU make installed??
If I don't, what are the steps I need to take to get them installed?

GNU I use Linux, which is a variant of GNU, so I'm not sure how to check to see if you have it. Good luck!

Type "gcc", see if it works
And "make --version" to see if you have GNU make (if the "make" you have isn't GNU make, try "gmake"):
[ddipaolo@quinn ~]% make --version
GNU Make 3.80

Configuration instructions have me confused
This is my first time doing anything like this...configuring and building a GNU software. I'd really appreciate if someone could help me out with this.
After downloading the file 'gcc-3.2.2.tar.gz', these are the steps I have completed so far:
[list=1][*]gunzip gcc-3.2.2.tar.gz[*]tar xvf gcc-3.2.2.tar[*]cd gcc-3.2.2.[/list=1]
Now I am reading the configuration instructions http://gcc.gnu.org/install/configure.html but I am just not getting it.
What is meant by native and cross targets?
What do they mean by toplevel source directory and toplevel build/object directory?
What is CVS?

whenever you find a term you don't understand/havent heard of, just try searching google for it, and most times, you'll get what you're looking for near the top
