do you have gcc?
cc is a symlink for gcc.
cpp is the c pre processor ( the one that does text substitutions)
and cc is the c compiler ( the one that actually does the compiling).
So if you end up having gcc in say /usr/bin do the following:
ln -s /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/cc
and that will take care of your problem. If you execute gcc in an terminal and it tells you command not found then you need to install the development packages for your distro(which you should have cause cpp is from the gcc package).
