At first glance, I'd say either your system doesn't have a C compiler
installed, or if it does, configure isn't finding it in any of the usual
locations. Could you provide the mailing list with some specifics about
which version of which operating system your running, what C compiler
you have, and where it's installed? The configure program looks for
cc and gcc in all directories listed in your PATH environment variable.
What is your PATH set to? Do you know in which directory cc or gcc is
on your system? You're not giving us much to go on.
