Is ccwrap.c something i need to turn on? I didnt disable it and GCC is in
the /bin dir while i still call ./configure and while running ./configure i
receive this output:

"configure error cannot run c compiled programs."

Now checking the config.log i see

./configure: line 3900: ./conftest: no such file or directory

For the sake of argument i decided to perform the old hello world test.c
test. I did so and recieved a a.out file which clearly had some data in it.
trying to run that a.out file returned the error "file not found "

Im using musl 1.1.3 gcc 4.6.4 musl patched

I am trying to dynamic link, i also have binutils 2.24 and i couldnt find
any other data on musl patching the headers which doesnt make sense to me.
why would linux headers version 3.16 need to be musl patched? headers dont
even deal with the libc do they?
