This looks wrong.  Configure is looking for gcc (a c compiler) but is 
getting cpp (the C preprocessor).  You should install gcc  and try to 
run configure again.

If gcc is already installed then check that  your CC environment 
variable hasn't been set to something odd as this will override the 
autodetection of the c compiler in configure.
