No I haven't - it's a new system.  I don't know if anyone else has but it doesn't matter - I installed it through the package manager and it works fine.

The log file says: 
| configure:2575: gcc    conftest.c  >&5
| collect2: cannot find 'ld'

Have you successfully built anything from sources on that system?
