configure: error: in `/home/tylmorse/Downloads/Python-3.7.0':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details

This question is different from the other in that I am trying to install the 64bit version as opposed to the 32bit. Also, below are the contents of config.log.

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by python configure 3.7, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.69.  Invocation command line was

$ ./configure

  • @garethTheRed The proposed duplicate is trying to use build system x86_64 on host system x86_32 and that's what broke the build... This one doesn't look the same, it's clearly listing x86_64-pc-linux-gnu as both build and host system types... So doesn't necessarily look like a duplicate. – filbranden Sep 5 '18 at 6:36
  • @SpoopsForDays Can you please post the contents of config.log somewhere (a paste bin or something) and link it here? That might help troubleshoot your issue... – filbranden Sep 5 '18 at 6:37

    The files Scrt1.o and crti.o are missing. Your package manager should have installed them together with the C compiler, because the compiler won't produce executable without these files. – RalfFriedl Sep 11 '18 at 5:27
