gcc config problems

I just installed SuSE 6 on my computer at work.

I am having trouble installing software from source using the standard
'./confgiure' 'make' 'make install'

I get a message saying my C++ compiler does not work.

I have gcc- Does it need anything else to make it compile

My installation is only days old, so I don't think I broke anything yet

This is the output from running ./config for gtk+ for gimp:

loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... found
checking for working autoconf... found
checking for working automake... found
checking for working autoheader... found
checking for working makeinfo... found
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... yes
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for c++... c++
checking whether the C++ compiler (c++ ) works... no

 configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C++ compiler
cannot create executables.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
