installing from a source tar.gz

Whenever I try to install a tar.gz file from the sourcecode with ./configure. I get the message "checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH"
what should I do?

It's looking for the gcc compiler,You can install it from your cd's. go to install software and search in files for gcc and it should find it for you .
