This was not a part of your question, but I'll comment on it anyway:

1. Extracting third-party tarballs and compiling software as root is a
bad practice.  You could want to try to develop a habit to never compile
software as root.  It might save you one day.

2. You almost certainly want "linux-x86-mmx", not "linux-x86-any" in
order to use your non-ancient CPU optimally.

Most likely you don't have glibc-devel installed, possibly something
else as well.  You can't compile any C programs (not just John) on that
system until you install the proper packages.

Hope this helps.
