R has a file INSTALL which asks you to read R-admin.html if you have a 
problem.  That manual explains that you need a C (preferably C99) and a 
Fortran compiler.  This extensive posting merely says that you don't have 
a C compiler in your path.  That's not something we can help you with.
(Lots of other tools are missing as well.)
