: GCG is a program package for workstations. It does not make much sense
: to install it on your favourite machine. I think you also need a
: fortran compiler to install it (I've never played with GCG as an
: admin, unfortunately). If you want GCG, persuade your computer center
: to buy it.

GCG comes with executables for the platforms it supports; no recompiling 
is normally necessary, (thank heavens, since it can be a pig to recompile)  
except for bug update corrections if wanted. I think it's  mostly ported 
(or at least partly ported) to C now. Installing it is relatively painless.
I recall that it used to require the fortran compiler libraries on 
some platforms; I haven't checked recently if this this is still the case.
