Compiling a program

i have just downloaded xchat and have unziped it with this command:

tar -xjvf xchat-2.4.0.tar.bz2.tar [ Unziped succsessfull ]
Now im going to compile my program with ./configure
and i get the error msg:

configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

i know i need gcc and i have already installed it.
Im jusing SuSe 9.1 personal and have searched for c++,gcc and so on
in add packages section. and i cant find any packages that i do not have.
Does anyone know how i could fix this problem ?

As far as I know, the development tools are not included in the personal edition. You'll need to get them from SuSE's ftp site. This site has some information on what to do
