[PD] OSX: Install help!

I'm having a very hard time getting PD setup on my g4,
powerbook running .37 and tcl 8.4.1   ... here is what
I'm doing (prefaced by the instructions):

Quick compilation instructions for Linux or Mac OSX
(assuming for Mac OSX that
you've got Tck/Tk installed):

Change to "src" subdirectory.

type "./configure", possibly adding flags as follows:

To enable ALSA 0.9x (the latest one), add
To enable the older ALSA 0.5x, add
To enable Ritsch's RME 9652 driver, add --enable-rme".
To put Pd in /usr/bin instead of /usr/local/bin, add

Type "make depend" and then "make"; or, if you prefer,
as superuser
type "make install".

To run pd, either type the full pathname as in
/home/me/pd/bin/pd, or else
if you've chosen "make install", just type "pd".


 I don't need any flags, since I have no ALSA or RME
drivers, and I have no desire to move PD - just
execute it:

[12-224-175-158:~] enon% cd pd-0.37-0
[12-224-175-158:~/pd-0.37-0] enon% cd src
[12-224-175-158:~/pd-0.37-0/src] enon% ./configure
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in
[12-224-175-158:~/pd-0.37-0/src] enon% humm....
humm....: Command not found.

Am I doing something wrong here?
