Do you have a c compiler ? I have a doubt on it

If your C-compiler's name is different from "gcc" or "cc" you can
start configure like this:

CC="cc_name" ./configure

If this is not your problem (e.g. there is gcc or cc in your path),
please provide more information about your operating system and

In order to compile software, i.e. to turn it from source code into executables, you need a compiler. Traditionally, this compiler is referred to as 'cc' (/usr/bin/cc). If a compiler is installed, '/usr/bin/cc' is a symlink (a pointer) to the 'real' compiler executable, usually gcc:

$ ls -l /usr/bin/cc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root (..) /usr/bin/cc -> gcc*

try man cc or man gcc what is the output you get ? If there is some mannual page appear then your system do contain a c compiler. If it gives you some thing like bad command or bash:command not found. Then certainly there dont have a c ompiler on it. Give a try. Do post back the outcome.
