Hi Len:
perhaps better for me to go for a jogging, or make a cup of strong green tea, because I am getting really confused:

shows that both gcc-4.1 and make are installed (blank*** with the last * highlighted, as for packages that work, like apt)

In contrast (?)
#dpkg -S /usr/bin/gcc
dpkg: /usr/bin/gcc not found

but see below from a perusal of directories

Installation was in differet partitions and raid1: /, /usr, /var/ swap, /home, /tmp

/usr/bin includes, inter alia, g++-4.1, gcc-4.1, gccbug-4.1

Previously I was trying to compile a program that has Makefile only:
gcc -g -02 -c -o active.o active.c
make: *** [active.o] Error 127

thank you

Why with amd64 debian etch

$man gcc

reveals that both
gcc-4.1 and make
are installed from base installation.

Of course my question is not merely related to that, but to the use of
queries with respect to 32bit etch.
Is gcc installed?  gcc-4.1 provides gcc-4.1, gcc depends on the current
gcc, and provides the gcc link to the current version.

# dpkg -S /usr/bin/gcc
gcc: /usr/bin/gcc

"gcc" is a symbolic link, provided by the "gcc" package. Since you don't have the "gcc" package, you have no "gcc".

Either compile your app using "gcc-4.1" instead of "gcc", or install the "gcc" package.
