Point 1: You need to install the development tools. Do "sudo apt-get
install build-essential" without the quotes.
Point 2: Why are you trying to install mp3blaster by compiling from
source? You didn't mention what version of Ubuntu you're using, but on
Breezy (5.10) the software is already available in Universe (you may
need to enable this by uncommenting it in /etc/apt/sources.list).

sudo apt-get install mp3blaster
