??? Make sure the C compiler gcc -O is properly installed

When I tried to install ocaml, it output like follows.
I don't know where go wrong and how to "properly install" gcc -O?
Thanks very much!!!

xxx@xxx-laptop:~/pku-ucla-2008/ocaml-3.10.2$ ./configure
Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1 ...
gcc found
Unable to compile the test program.
Make sure the C compiler gcc -O is properly installed.

What distribution and what package manager are you using? You need to check in the package manager to see if gcc is installed. If not then install it using your package manager.
