Please file a bug against emacs. It should be using dpkg
--print-installation-architecture which does not require gCC

It already does.
dpkg --print-architecture print target architecture (uses GCC)
dpkg --print-gnu-build-architecture print GNU version of target arch
dpkg --print-installation-architecture print host architecture (for inst'n)
This report should be reassigned to emacs20.
It's amazing how much "mature wisdom" resembles being too tired.
