libtool rpm install trouble

When I type this:

# rpm -Uvc libtool-1.5-6.i686.rpm
I get this:

warning: libtool-1.5-6.i686.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e01260f1
error: Failed dependencies:
gcc = 3.3.2 is needed by libtool-1.5-6
/usr/bin/i686-pld-linux-gcc is needed by libtool-1.5-6
Anyone know why, or what I can do to get past the problem? (or, for that matter, what this error message actually means?) Thanks much.

"error: Failed dependencies:

This says that gcc is not installed. gcc is the C compiler. If it is true that gcc is not installed then install gcc. It is also possible that you have an old version of gcc installed and you need to upgrade to a later version of gcc.

To check whther gcc is installed and the version number try:
rpm -qi gcc

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.

Yeah, that solved the problem. I think I just read the error message wrong. Thanks.
