Like the error message says you have to install a C compiler. I don't know how to do this on SuSE Linux. You should search in your package management system (probably in the development section). On Ubuntu there is a pseudo-package "build-essentials" that install all commonly necessary tools to build a program from source. Maybe there is one on SuSE too.
