cc is the conventional name for the system's C compiler. C is the programming language GNUPG is written in. A compiler is a program that translates from a high-level programming language (a human can understand, often processor-independant) to native processor code (your Pentium / Athlon / Duron / whatever can understand). gcc is the GNU C Compiler, the standard C compiler in Linux, and widely used across many Unices.

It _is_ on your GNU/Linux installation media (probably a CD-ROM). Use the installation program to install a package (RPM in your case) whose name is "gcc" or similar. Note: Redhat 7.1 probably has a package for GnuPG, too, so you don't need to compile it yourself, just install the package whose name is "gpg" or "gnupg" or similar (If you _want_ to compile GnuPG by yourself, you are welcome to, just informing you there is an easier way). --=20 Lionel Elie Mamane RFC 1991 (PGP 2.x) 2048 bits Key Fingerprint (KeyID: 20C897E9): 85CF 986F 263E 8CD0 80FD 4B8C F5F9 C17D OpenPGP DH/DSS 4096/1024 Key Fingerprint (KeyID: 3E7B4B73): 9DAD 3131 3ADA F50B D096 002A B1C4 7317 3E7B 4B73 --GvXjxJ+pjyke8COw Content-Type: application/pgp-signature Content-Disposition: inline -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.6 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE7oylEscRzFz57S3MRApRYAKDwdULGECo1cSauHFIf2ZIMqAdTNACgwqj0 iCJPgM4o06QtI3ErWmpABqk= =HJpH -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- --GvXjxJ+pjyke8COw--
