Could it be that you don't have g++ installed on your system ?
"apt-get install g++" or equivalent should do the trick.

Looks as if you don't have OpenGL either. Something like
"apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dev" or equivalent should give you
suitable libraries.

If the above don't work, please let us know what Linux distribution
you're using. Also, in case even g++ is missing, there's probably a
lot of other development tools and libraries that aren't there
either. GETTING-STARTED lists some of the dependencies encountered
on systems already set up for a moderate amount of development, but
if starting with a clean slate, there are probably more. They'll
make themselves known with build failures further down the line ;-)
