I recommend instead that you grab the snapshots of FPC from the FPC FTP
server.  Check out my howto at:

Looks like you don't have an assembler installed, and you'll need it.

I'm betting when you installed Mandrake you did not install the
"Development" options.

On my Mandrake 9 it installed "as" as part of the "binutils" package. 
So, fire up your software manager and install binutils.[whatever].rpm
from your Mandrake CD's.
