More information required...

Which Operating System?

Which package are you trying to install?  Source or Binary?

It sounds like you've got a source package, and you're trying to install
on some kind of UNIX system.

It sounds like the problem is that it's looking for a C compiler (e.g.
gcc) and you haven't got one installed.
