Trying to install Ogg Vorbis

I have made a little progress. I am impressed by what yum will do. However, I have come up against another problem.

I have downloaded libao-0.8.6.tar.gz and extracted it. When I try to ./configure I get the following (parts removed for brevity)
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking for g++... no
checking for c++... no
checking for gpp... no
checking for aCC... no
checking for CC... no
checking for cxx... no
checking for cc++... no
checking for cl... no
checking for FCC... no
checking for KCC... no
checking for RCC... no
checking for xlC_r... no
checking for xlC... no
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
checking whether g++ accepts -g... no
checking dependency style of g++... none
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
I found this in config.log
configure:4598: g++ -c >&5
./configure: line 4599: g++: command not found
configure:4604: $? = 127
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h.  */
|                    Syntax error
configure:4957: /lib/cpp
cpp: installation problem, cannot exec 'cc1plus': No such file or directory
configure:4963: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h.  */
Presumably that was what it was complaining about?

I have gcc installed. What else do I need? Another package?

You need gcc-c++ installed as well.
