This error usually occurs when you installing a program and its missing gcc compiler location in the  $PATH  variable, one of dependencies for the program you are installing.

 $PATH  is an environment variable or we can call it as a global variable which holds executables directories relevant to the current user. For example in linux, it is  bin,sbin  and in windows it holds  c:windowssystem32 

So when you install a program and it requires gcc compiler, it will try to find its location in $PATH variable. When its location not available in the $PATH variable you may get configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

To resolve this you have to install gcc compiler. It can be installed in the following ways,

yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

apt-get install build-essential
