Thumbs up trying to install GCC, says i need a cc??

Hi. I'm not all that new to linux, but only a couple years I'm in now. Anyway, I'm trying to install gcc from tar.bz2, I get to ./configure, and I get this message:

[steve@vallie gcc-4.1.1]$ ./configure
creating cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether ln works... yes
checking whether ln -s works... yes
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

What should I do? That's basically saying to me, you're trying to install a compiler, but you don't have a compiler, so no. lol

Any help would be appreciated.

Perhaps you can find a binary gcc package for your distribution and use that to compile the compiler.
