You also have to install the build-essential package with gcc:

sudo apt-get install gcc build-essential

Does ubuntu not come with gcc installed? Isn't that pretty much sacrilege. Have you tried typing gcc on the command line, see what happens.

I think the default server installation does not include gcc. It seems to me a had to use apt-get to install it. I'm new to ubuntu. Some of the default installation choices seemed odd to me.

default ubuntu didn't come with sshd by default. It doesn't surprise me. I also found it lacking. I use OpenSUSE as my first choice and could not be happier

Ubuntu is designed for desktop users (email, word processing, surfing, etc) as its primary use case. The server edition is primarily designed for running an Internet server (Apache, DNS, SQL, etc). In neither case is a C compiler a necessary or particularly useful component to install by default.
