Question Questions on installing bind-9.3.1

Runnig RH7 on a collocated server.
Just downloaded bind and untared the files.
My DNS & Bind O'Reilly book had me run the configure file which printed:

[root@HOSTA-D113-1 bind-9.1.3]# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... no
checking for ranlib... :
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for ar... no
configure: error:
ar program not found. Please fix your PATH to include the directory in which ar resides, or set AR in the environment with the full path to ar.

What do this mean and what should I do?
"Please fix your PATH to include the directory in which ar resides, or set AR in the environment with the full path to ar."

Any other suggestion are appreciated too.
