Thanks for the help! I failed to realize the dash/bash difference. I assumed mint uses bash -_-' oops. and i'll get on to installing texinfo as well. Thanks!

Please don't number the lines or insert a tab in front of them - it
wastes space. It's perfectly acceptable to paste a block of lines,
which will be easier for you if you are using a mouse.

I was going to point out that if configure reports the C compiler
cannot create executables (on a linux system) it seems pretty likely
that gcc is involved, and I was going to ask for details of the
error message immediately before this when configure tried to
compile the code fragment and failed. But on balance I think you
have answered this below.

You appear to be missing 'cc1'. apt-get install build-essential.
$DEITY knows why ubuntu package things like this (a compiler, but
not able to compile!).
