well, the error message says it all: you're trying to create an
executable which does not have a main() function, so it is unclear
what your program is supposed to do.

The file svd.c contains functions which calculate the SVD
decomposition of a matrix, but in order to actually do that, you need
a main() function which calls those functions.

I hope that helps,
