Almost every distrobution of linux comes with a C compiler called gcc. I've only used it to build downloaded programs, but if you check it out (run 'man gcc' on the command line) I believe it should do the trick

If it truly does not contain the C compiler (I don't know why it wouldn't though) you can check here to download it.
