You don't have development packages installed on your system. This means that you can't compile any software source code on your system.

Boot into Redhat Linux and then insert CD1 of Redhat Linux 7.x. The system will detect the CD-ROM and automatically start anaconda (Redhat Linux installer, it is the same installer the installs the Linux for the first time on your system). Select all the developement tools and packages to install them. After successful install reboot the system. This will enable not only compilation of source packages but you can also design and develope your own applications using developement tools you just installed. :)

Note: This solution will only work on Redhat Linux 7.3 and above.
