Which distribution of Linux are you using? It is obvious that you have not chosen the development packages during installation. You need to do that now.
Each distribution usually has its own software package management system. Open up the one on your system and choose the development packages.

You don't have gcc installed, which is necessary for installing (compiling) code.

theres a few topics about this program, but all i need to do to use it is open amsn file and nothing else. but u might need to do otherthings.

another god thing to do is look at the readme file. Sometimes there are cases where the ./configure and make and makeinstall arent used.
Usually the readme file will give instructions on the proper way to install.

Right click on your desktop and select "new link to application" and at the "execute" tab type the path where amsn is.

You can also make a symbolik link for amsn to your path. For example if /usr/local/bin is in your path and amsn is located at /home/you/amsn do:

ln -s /home/you/amsn /usr/local/bin

This way you don't have to be at the amsn directory to run it and your not going to need the "." before to run it, just open a shell and type amsn or press Alt+F2 and type amsn.
