Can't install Wacom tablet driver

I'm trying to install an Intuos serial wacom tablet on i386-redhat-linux. I attached my tablet and downloaded linuxwacom-0.7.6-4 from the site.
I unpacked the contents into /usr/X11R6/lib/modules and tried to run the ./configure script. I got error messages:

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 for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

Then I did a search for my gcc and found it in:

Is there a problem with the path of gcc when it's trying to install the program into /usr/bin ?

What can I do to install this correctly?

Please help!

Similar problem

Hi Pan
I am facing a very similar problem. I have to install WACOM driver on to a COM module CM-X270. I thought of installing it first on a desktop PC first. Then I got the similar report as you "No Acceptable compiler found"

I dont have gcc but instead I have gcc296 compiler on my comp.

May be presently I can move ahead by just loading a gcc compiler, but then in later stage
when I have to compile using a ARM Toolchain/a cross compiler so I dont want to go for a shortcut.

Now I guess we have to change the compiler name some where in the source files.
Where I dont know.

Please inform me if you find out a solution.
