All those packages that are returning a "no" have to be installed. As you have not given any information relating to what distro you are running, or what version of that particular distro, that's about as far as we can help you.

Actually, from what I can see, you're running a MAC, with a MAC operating system kernel. Why do you think you are running Linux?

Some of Mac commands likely to same as Linux. It is needed to install "Xcode" that includes with Mac install disc. It has C compiler, which may fix ur probs. Another reason to check GCC should be installed at /usr/bin/cc, which is necessary to path.
