How to get rid of special characters in the output of make on centos

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I installed centos6.3. When I run gcc, it outputs errors but the function names are surrounded by special characters like this ‘setup_connection’: This same is repeated with variable names. I am wondering if the terminal settings have to be changed. I am currently using ssh to login to the machine. Any inputs valuable (HowTos)
