Install the compiler.
How depends on your distribution.
BTW, can't you use the package manager from your distribution
to install the software, instead of compiling from source?

Kind regards

You at least need a c compiler, gcc preferrably, if you are going to compile the source code. Otherwise, I found pre-compiled versions:

http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el6/en/x86_6....rf.x86_64.rpm for 64-bit, and
http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el6/en/i386/...l6.rf.i686.rpm for 32-bit.

It's not really a good idea to install software manually, because you package manager will not track it. This will make it very difficult to unnstall the package, and can lead to dependency hell.

install gcc ( development group)
for that you MUST have a red hat license and your install of rhel6 (point what 0 or 1 )MUST be registered
Code:
su -
yum grouplist 
/* then from that list */
yum groupinstall "Development Tools" "Development Libraries"
and READ the instructions ON VLC's web site!!!!!!
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-redhat.html
you just need to rewrite them for rhel6

ask your paid for support
https://www.redhat.com/support/

rpmforge-extras is INCOMPATIBLE with RHN
install yum-protectbase and yum-priorities
