You cant compile anything, you dont have a compiler. You have to get a binary version of gcc first.

You should probably be able to find gcc, glibc, and the other programs needed to compile (wouldn't hurt to get automake, autoconfig while your at it) with yast. I don't use Suse but I know that much.
A tar.bz2 is probably a source file, you both are looking for an .rpm file, which is a packaged, percompiled binary that is installed with "rpm /path/to/file.rpm" or, like I said, with yast.
Read up on it.
