The problem is that the installation process cannot find a C language 
compiler which will be subsequently needed to run the make install.

If you have a C compiler installed then it may be that it cannot be found 
unless you add the path to it to the PATH environment variable of the user 
you are funning configure as.

Or it may be you need to install the C compiler.

If you need more help then you should identify the type and version of 
Unix-like OS you are running when posting the request for that help.
