That gcc package is for egcs, a compiler which some believe is superior to GCC because
it is more actively developed. Right now, Debian uses egcs for its C++ compiler (i.e.
g++ filename.cc uses egcs to compile it). I believe that one of the goals of Debian 2.1
is to offer egcs as a c compiler as well.
