In the install discs, you should be able to find a way to install  
XCode/Developer Tools.

If you can't find the installer, you can d/l it from here.
http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/

Install those and you'll get gcc, etc. You may be able to install gcc  
w/o XCode, but I'm not sure.

Or .. you can install MacPorts (http://macports.org) and then install  
gcc from there.

address, so it didn't get through, sorry to list mods :-)
