Difficulty installing, missing software

I'm missing, gcc? cc? CFLAGS, etc? What are these and how do I aquire them. I'm running redhat 9.0, and i'm not too sure what to do. Thanks for your time.

[root@cacole ncftp-3.1.7]# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking if you set and exported the environment variable CC... no (you may want to do that since configure scripts look for gcc first)
checking for environment variable CFLAGS... no (we will choose a default set for you)
checking for environment variable CPPFLAGS... no
checking for environment variable LDFLAGS... no
checking for environment variable LIBS... no
checking version of C library... glibc2.0
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

you can find it on your redhat installation cds, or even a place such as ...

well why it can't make it i am not too sure, but i have heard people having success by manually making this directory ..
just :
cd /usr/src/redhat

and then try to install the rpm again ...
if that doesn't work, then post back and we'll take further measures ..
