Question How To Install TCL? (For amsn messenger)

I'm trying to install TCL for using "amsn"

I downloaded TCL and extracted tcl8.4.5-src.tar.gz. It made a folder named tcl8.4.5-src

Then I run configure and get this output..

[ruwan@CPE00045a54d078-CM00080d25e244 tcl8.4.5]$ cd unix
[ruwan@CPE00045a54d078-CM00080d25e244 unix]$ dir
aclocal.m4 ldAix tclLoadDl.c tclUnixChan.c tclUnixSock.c
confdefs.h tclLoadDld.c tclUnixEvent.c tclUnixTest.c
config.cache mkLinks tclLoadDyld.c tclUnixFCmd.c tclUnixThrd.c
config.log README tclLoadNext.c tclUnixFile.c tclUnixThrd.h
configure tclAppInit.c tclLoadOSF.c tclUnixInit.c tclUnixTime.c tclLoadShl.c tclUnixNotfy.c tclXtNotify.c
dltest tclLoadAix.c tcl.m4 tclUnixPipe.c tclXtTest.c
install-sh tclLoadAout.c tcl.spec tclUnixPort.h
[ruwan@CPE00045a54d078-CM00080d25e244 unix]$ ./configure

"What am I doing wrong and how do I install TCL in the proper way??"

It cannot fond the C compiler. Do you have gcc installed? Try:
rpm -qi gcc
to see if you have the C compiler installed.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
