Make, any compiling will not work

I get an error whenever i run make, or ./configure
the ./configure error does not find gcc or cc, and alot of the times it does not find X windows
make gives me the error
make: *** [sanity] Error 255
at least on the last program i tried to make... this error was when compiling the Device3dfx driver, but it has happened on everysingle program i have tried to compile.. RH 6.1 am i missing some crucial file?
