That should be 
# apt-get source gcc-4.9
# apt-get build-dep gcc-4.9
# cd gcc-4.9-4.9.2
# dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us
# debi 

Or more simply:
(Install apt-build, and)
# apt-build install gcc-4.9

If you want to build the .deb for transfer then you probably _don't_
want to run the 'install' step on the local machine.

The 'gcc' binary package is built from the gcc-defaults source package. This is a metapackage.
The compiler itself (lots of binary packages) is built from the gcc-4.9 source package.
