help with installing Gnu C compiler


Can anyone help me please?

I am trying to install gcc on a Pentium III running Mandrake 8.2 however I cannot get
./configure to run

When I try the following I get the following error:

./configure i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld

Which I had assumed was the correct information...

[justin@linux gcc]$ ./configure i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
Created "Makefile" in /home/justin/gcc using "mt-frag"
./configure: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.
[justin@linux gcc]$

Can anyone point me in the right direction...?

Have you tried commanding as root urpmi gcc or installing it using the software management area in the Mandrake Control Center?

You didn't install the developmental packages? As root, command:
