Post Problem installing amsn


I am totally new to Linux, and want to learn...
I tried installing amsn on my RedHat8 and am unable to do so.
i type ./amsn and it comes back with:

>bash: ./amsn: /usr/bin/wish: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

i have worked out that wish is part of the tcl package, wich I also downloaded. when i exctract the tar and run ./configure, it gives me:

>loading cache ./config.cache
>checking whether to use symlinks for manpages... no
>checking compression for manpages... no
>checking for gcc... no
>checking for cc... no
>configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

I take it cc is some kind of compiler, but where do I find it from?
I tried found gcc but it seems that it also needs cc to install itself.
If someone could help me out here, it would be really great... ;-)

Install the gcc and gcc-devel rpm's from your redhat cd.

and f course use a decent client instead like gaim.

as for your dependency.. cc is a fallback in the case that gcc is not found. most configure scripts look for 5 or 6 potential compilers before giving up.
