gcc problem in chroot

I think it is looking for an environment variable, not an actual program.  
Type this:  "echo $CC" (notice the case, unix is case sensitive!)

It should print out the path to your compiler, i.e.  /usr/bin/cc.  If it 
doesn't, you need to set the variable.  do this by typing "export 
CC=/usr/bin/cc" (or whereever your actual compiler is) and try again.
