installing gyach....wierd ./configure problem

good morning everyone!

well here i am running mandrake for the first time. I tried slackware for a little bit, but I wanted to spend time using my computer, not configuring it. Anyways....
This is the only problem i have ran into so far:
I downloaded Gyach .9.6 so I could chat it up on yahoo when Im bored. Im having a problem with getting it installed. Here is what I mean:

[root@hotwatermusic gyach-0.9.6]# ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
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

I tried doing a updatedb..nothin. Same problem. Are things organized a bit differently on Mandrake? Just wondering what I need to do to get past this problem Im having.

Thanks for any answers you can give me.

have you got GCC installed??
install from RPM instead of a tarball - its much easier
try 'gaim' it seems to support most messaging

wow, that was a quick response!! LOL

Yea, i did a locate and got a few screens worth of directories pertaining to gcc so its there. There is a gyach rpm? LOL I keep forgeting Im using a .rpm based system.

Still, I should be able to install something from tar'ed source shouldnt I? Seems kinda strange that I wouldnt be able to.
