Could you post some error messages? Does gcc -v give you anything?

I think you are missing part of GTK (graphical development), maybe the devel or something. Check the website where you got it and it should tell you what packages/libraries are required. If you don't have one, you need to get that and install that first. I bet the other compiles are running into the same thing, you're missing libraries that you'll need to install first.

are you logged in as root


it looks like you are in /home/tyler which usually means you are logged in as tyler

tyler usually does not have permission to write to /usr/local/bin

drwxr-xr-x 2 root bin 4096 Dec 8 11:04 bin/

when using su it is best to use
