Installation through source
I have used Linux (Fedora, SUSE, Gentoo) for over three years now, and this is the first time I have used a Debian distro. I have many installers (src /tar.gz) available with me. Are they of any use here? Because when I type ./configure I get the error gcc found....no (etc.), although I have gcc installed. Please help me.
Thanks in advance.

are you trying to install a prog that doesn't need ./configure...not all programs install in the same manner, consult the readme that should be included in the untarred folder.Operating System: GNU Emacs
Are you sure you have gcc installed? It seems likely that you don't or it is not in your path if the ./configure script can't find it?
apt-get install gcc-3.3.5-3
this is the latest stable release of gcc according to: debian on a package search
EDIT: you might not need the -3 release candidate version, I'm not sure, not currently using debian.
