Smile SuSE 9.1 Personal configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler

Hi, I discovered linux a few months ago in school and I'm completely addicted. I do have to admit its another world all together from Windoze. To get to the point. I'm trying to "build" ( for lack of the proper terminology ) gFTP for SuSE 9.1 Personal. I've already been able to fix many of the problems I was having before just from this forum. But as it is, I've ran into a brick wall. This is the message i get from running the ./configure:

orion@orion:~/gftp-2.0.17> ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for non-GNU ld... /usr/bin/ld
checking if the linker (/usr/bin/ld) is GNU ld... yes
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/ginstall -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal-1.4... found
checking for working autoconf... found
checking for working automake-1.4... found
checking for working autoheader... found
checking for working makeinfo... found
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.

Ive managed to fix everything from the start until this happened,
then as you can see is the C compiler doesn't seem to work lol

I know this is probably easy for the experienced nixer but Ive been on linux for a month now and thats that. Thanks for any advice or feedback.

Ok, I managed to get paste that and I've run into this:

checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.3... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to glib-config.
configure: error: gFTP needs GLIB 1.2.3 or higher

I'm so lost
