C programs

I write in ANSI C and the gcc on Ubuntu 1.7 doesn't like it. Here is
the source code:

/* converts 2 fathoms to feet */
#include <stdio.h>
int main (void)
int feet, fathoms;

fathoms = 2;
feet = 6 * fathoms;
printf("There are %d feet in %d fathems!\n", feet, fathoms);
return 0;

When I run gcc it errors out with:

karl@karl-desktop:~/Cprog$ gcc fathm_ft.c
fathm_ft.c:2:19: error: stdio.h: No such file or directory

Now it can't find stdio.h and why is that?

I thought stdio.h is a standard C header.
