Unhappy ELX linux!!!!!!!

I've downloaded irssi-0.8.6.tar.gz and extract all the files into irssi-0.8.6 directory from there i've tried ./configure and appeared an error like this:

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... missing

checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no

checking for strerror in -lcposix... no

checking for cc... no

configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

... then i tried rpm but still nothing

Can anyone help me??

I think that means you've not got a C compiler installed. Install GCC, it should be somewhere on your distro's disks (please tell me if this is all wrong, gurus ).
