Though I'm surprised it didn't complain about not having a program named 
'gcc' if this was your problem. Did you install that manually?
(I have a hard time believing they'd add gcc to the default install but 
forgot the C library)
If you've installed gcc manually (apt-get install gcc) you may have 
forgotten to also install libc6-dev (which is recommended when 
installing gcc, but not a requirement -- though you'll need it in pretty 
much any normal program).
Installing build-essential should make sure you didn't miss anything else...
