    char exePath[800];
    if(getcwd(exePath,sizeof(exePath))== NULL)  {
        printf("Exe path access error\n");
    GDALDataset  *poDataset;


    poDataset = (GDALDataset *) GDALOpen( exePath, GA_ReadOnly );
    if( poDataset == NULL )

According to this you don't have the build-essentials package installed. You solve this just running:

sudo apt-get install build-essential

I tried to run your code, but was hit with another problem due some headers dependencies:
