Cool Trouble installing packages on Mandrake 10

I need help with the building part of the progam. I extract the program jamvm.tar.gz to a directory of my choice with no problem. The configure file exists in my dir. When I type: "./configure", I get the error msg: "no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH". What does this mean? I doing all this so I can install LimeWire which requires a JVM to be installed. Maybe I'm going about this all wrong. Please help me......

Well, as opposed to sun's jvm or the
blackdown port this jamvm comes as
source. To install it you'll have to install
a c-compiler as well.

There are probably 3 packages you'll need to install to get full C++ support.
gcc c++-3.3.2-6mdk
They're on your install CD's.
If you go to start menu -> Configure your Computer -> enter password -> Software Management -> Install and type gcc in the search pane, it'll list all the gcc packages on your install CD's. The above 3 are the ones you want.

IMHO Limewire sux. Just my opinion mind...
