installing GTK 2 problem

hello, according to gtk installation guide, i go to folder as root under terminal and type in:
./configure --prefix=/opt/gtk
which i did, and it starts doing its thing, but at the end i get this error:
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check

and in the error log i get:
tax error
configure:4844: /lib/cpp
cpp: installation problem, cannot exec `cc1plus': No such file or directory
configure:4850: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:

Without a distro,I'd have to take a SWAG and say your compiler is not set up for C+.
