First, you need to see if you have gcc installed type
whereis gcc

If it was not foung you need to install it.

If it was found, then in your ~/.bashrc file add a line
PATH=$PATHath_to_gcc
path_to_gcc being the full directory path that contains gcc. Then run
source .bashrc

You need to have the compiler (gcc) installed. How to install it is depending on your distribution. You should find some sort of "package" (deb, rpm) and install it. In RedHat/Fedora it's in the "Development Tools" section.

Good luck!

I'm not a Mandrake user. Isn't there an "Add/Remove packages" (or similar) option somewhere in the system settings menus?

You only need the base gcc package. You don't, for example, need the gcc-g77 package, since that's a Fortran compiler and Fortran is kind of the dinosaur of programming languages.

You need to find the GLIB pkg and install it.
