Have you ever sucessfuly compiled software on this install before? If not, I would say there's a pretty good chance that you don't have a compiler installed. I'm not familiar with YaST packaging tools, but I think it's basically the same as other distributions: install gcc, make, and automake (some package managers simply call it "Programming tools"). Once the installation is complete, try ./configure again, and you will likely find that it will not fail (or at least, come out with a different error message).

Hope this helps
