Configuring zsh - -3.0-pre4 under SGI/Irix


Configuring zsh-3.0-pre4 (and others) under SGI/Irix fails when using
gcc als C compiler:

creating cache ./config.cache
configuring for zsh 3.0-pre4
checking host system type... mips-sgi-irix5.3
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
checking whether gcc needs -traditional... no
checking for working const... no
checking whether cross-compiling... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... no
checking for function prototypes... no
checking size of long... configure: error: can not run test program while cross compiling

When  n o t  using gcc, but cc for configuring, that means: 

CC=cc ./configure

then all runs without problems
