newbie software install question


Hi. I am trying to install xmms on mandrake 9.2.

i downloaded the tar.gz file, cd'd to /usr, untarred it okay, and when i ./configure it i get a problem. Here is what it said:

[root@linux xmms-1.2.10]# ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
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 for prefix by checking for xmms... 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.



Just wondering what to do. Thanks for any help
