configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

I am trying to Build and Install the Apache Thrift compiler and libraries

I had to type this command is shown in instructions

./configure && make

But I get this error:

checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: in `/PATH/TO/thrift-0.9.3':
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH


When I type in my command prompt
gcc --version
I get this

gcc (GCC) 5.3.0

It finds the gcc compiler. However, when I run it from my
msys2
Shell

bash: gcc: command not found


The path in Environment variables is correct.
C:\MinGW\bin


Yet it canno't find gcc

Thanks in advance!

Answer

The path to your gcc compiler is not in the PATH.

You may add it before you run make.

export PATH=${PATH}:/c/MinGW/bin
./configure && make

Goodluck.
