Exclamation error: cannot run C compiled programs.


ok, i am a little new to troubleshooting linux, and i need a little help.

i'm trying to install several different programs onto linux, but whenever i goto hit the ./configure file, i get the following (trying to compile a program called bibletime):

Code:
# ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build enviroment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... no
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... (cached) no
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... conftest.c
checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error cannot run C compiled programs
If you meant to cross compile, use '--host'.
(spelling may be wrong, but you get the idea)

here is my config.log

Code:
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.57.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure

Have you tried compiling something trivial manually?

check your env ...
env | grep FLAG

i've made a file, named test.c, with the info you've suplied, and i've tried these commands wth these results:

#cc test.c
bash: cc: command not found
#gcc test.c
# 1 "test.c"
# 1 "<built-in>"
# 1 "<command line>"
# 1 "test.c"
test.c:1:19: stdio.h: Nosuch file or directory

main()
{
printf("hello C is working");
}
