Unhappy problems installing livejournal client

Alright, it all started out when I downloaded the files for logjam, a livejournal client. I extracted the files, and then passed the command ./configure to the shell, the settings and stuff were checked for, and I was informed that i needed to install something called I downloaded that, and then when I executed ./configure for that, this message came up:

"[trinitybellwoods@localhost pkgconfig-0.15.0]$ ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr//bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal-1.4... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake-1.4... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... found
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for Cygwin environment... no
checking for mingw32 environment... no
checking how to run the C preprocessor... /lib/cpp
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH"

now, I could go on and look up every single thing it said was missing, but I have the feeling that this will become an endless loop of missing programs/files/whatever. If someone can give me a hand in deciphering exactly what this program wants you would make me oh so happy...

p.s. just to let you know, I'm working with the K desktop environment, if that makes any difference.

You don't have gcc installed, this is what is used to compile software. You can download it here, although it should've come and been installed with your distro. Check the CDs.
