Trying to build Native C Code on Raspberry Pi3 with Gradle 4.3.1 fails

I’m trying to build a sample C code on my Raspberry Pi 3 with Gradle build 4.3.1 resulting in below pasted error message:

:assemble FAILED

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong:
    Execution failed for task ‘:assemble’.

No buildable binaries found:
- executable ‘main:executable’: No tool chain is available to build for platform ‘linux_arm-v7’:
- Tool chain ‘visualCpp’ (Visual Studio): Visual Studio is not available on this operating system.
- Tool chain ‘gcc’ (GNU GCC): Don’t know how to build for platform ‘linux_arm-v7’.
- Tool chain ‘clang’ (Clang): Don’t know how to build for platform ‘linux_arm-v7’.

Here is the contents of build.gradle file:

apply plugin : ‘c’

model {
components {

Here is the output from gcc -v:

I wanted to use Gradle on Raspberry Pi3 for building native code c/c++. Please let me know if any one has already tried this and any resolution for my issue.

Thank you,
