You should install gcc with your package manager.

Hi Bud

Try: (depending on you linux version and if you have the following)

yum install gcc

If you don't have Yum

Go to Http://www.rpmfind.net and search for gcc on there according to your Linux version

By spesifying you Linux version, it would have helped us more to help you ..

Many distros don't use RPM and YUM.

This is a good link but this version still requires a working gcc to be built. Getting it as a binary package is really the only option.

linux1028: if you don't know what is a package manager, please tell us what distribution of linux you are using.
