Problems with NVIDIA - gcc ver check fails

When I installed Fedora on my computer, my first step was to install the NVIDIA drivers. When I installed it on my brother's machine, I did the same for him. However, when I tried installing the drivers on his machine (and on another machine I worked on), I receive this strange error message that has been driving me mad.

gcc-version-check failed:

./usr/src/nv/ line 1: cc: command not found
could not compile gcc-version-check.c
I've been beating on it for a very long time now and I can't beat it. I've tried updating my binutils, modutils, and gcc (but upgrading gcc fails in both yum and apt). What's the matter?

Please offer me some help, my brother's really yelling at me that he can't play his precious games.

Thank you for your reply and assistance! Unfortunately, it seemed to perform that command without problems, but the NVIDIA installer continues to display the error message.
