Question Cdrdao Install from source Issue

I want to install k3b, but had to install cdrdao first. When trying to configure the source after it was untarred I got the following message. Could someone help me decipher the message. I know gcc is a compiler but why can it not be found. I'm installing cdrdao 1.1.7 from source on Mandy 9.

The message is as follows:

[root@diebenkorn cdrdao-1.1.7]# ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

Thanks for the help in advance!

configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
It can't find cc (c compiler) in your path, do you have installed the compiler? If so locate it using whereis cc and add the found path to your path settings in your .bash_profile (if you're using bash as shell), like this:
# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc

# User specific environment and startup programs

i ran a whereis cc and it didn't bring back anything. So must i install cc, the compiler? I'll try to install it if so.

Thanks markus1982!
