Just for the record, you should not be able to compile any C code at
all, since the GNU C Compiler package "gcc" Requires "glibc-devel",
the package that contains the C standard library files for software
development. They build a set. When installing gcc, glibc-devel is
installed, too. Most likely you did not have "gcc" installed either.
Btw, it's a similar thing with C++, "g++" Requires "libstdc++-devel".
