Problem installing from source


I have just installed SUSE 10.0 OSS and I've been very pleased with it so far.

I am having a problem trying to install GAIM:

simon@linux:~/Programs> tar zxf gaim-2.5.0.tar.gz
simon@linux:~/Programs> cd gaim-1.5.0
simon@linux:~/Programs/gaim-1.5.0> ./configure

checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking target system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for sed... /usr/bin/sed
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no

The guide is fine, your SuSE install seems to be missing
a compiler. Install one, and try again.
