The configure script must find a C compiler.  You cannot compile GNU
make without a compiler.

It does not have to be GCC: you can use any C compiler.  But you have to
have one.

The script takes the place of make itself, if you don't already
have one.  You still need a C compiler and you need to run configure
(the configure script will translate the into a
when it runs).
