I'll assume you have a Debian system already.  If that's the case:

- Login as root.
- run `dselect'.
- Search (press the `/' key) for "gcc".
- Verify that you have the "gcc" package highlighted, and press `+' to
select the package for install.
- Hit the "Enter" key, and let dselect do its thing.
- Enjoy.

If you don't have a running Debian system then you probably want to
install the gcc package provided by your distribution, or check the GNU
archive at "prep.ai.mit.edu".
