Install GCC binaries and then screen on unknown distro


Hello, I have a pre-configured linux distro on a raspberry pi (used for a bitcoin miner)
My target is to install screen so I can run cgminer on it and then ssh out and keep it running.
I downloaded the tarball, ran tar -xzvf screen-4.0.3.tar.gz , but when I run ./configure I get
Code:
root@raspberrypi:~/screen-4.0.3# ./configure
this is screen version 4.0.3
checking for prefix by checking for screen... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
I can't tell which distro it is, no welcome message when I log on or something.
The only thing I could find:
Code:
root@raspberrypi:~# cat /etc/issue
Poky 9.0.3 (Yocto Project 1.4.3 Reference Distro) 1.4.3 \n \l
can someone help?

That link doesn't help me much.. Yes I have looked through the yocto webpages, wiki and such, but I could not find any useful information on a yocto software repository, or how to install other software.

Which distribution are you running?
If the answer is "I don't know" then what information is it you want to give to John Q Random and why?

I have to say I have no idea how to use Yocto. As far as I can see it seems to be a framework for installing Linux on embedded systems which includes the Pi. Unless you're using Yocto for a specific reason I'd suggest installing Raspbian so you can just "apt-get install screen" and, if you're running Jessie (currently testing, will be Stable) just "apt-get install cgminer" also.

I have tried using debian and porting the whole miner thing to it, but for some reason cgminer starts producing many errors after a few minutes and eventually it crashes:
Code:

So I had to go back to this custom distro made by the miner's manufacturer.
So my only option is to install gcc on it to be able to install other tools like screen.
