OK, I need to apologise.  I plead fatigue:

I'm either tired, blind, or stupid, because in your transcript, you
quite clearly had "./configure [blah]" returning this:

Sorry about that.

I'll bet that _both_ "which cc" and "which gcc" return "Command not found",
and the reason will turn out to be that gcc actually is _not_ installed.

If you believe it _is_ installed, show us (and check $PATH's value).
