It's there but it's called differently (kgcc ??). I would refer to the 
archives since lots of people have reported problems with RH7.x and 
everytime someone stepped in and said, hey, just change the link from 
gcc to <kgcc>. Working from memory here so please apply grain of salt 
before taking too seriously...

I'm not quite sure about x86 versions, but I know for a fact that on
sparc64 redhat 7.3 ( (on my Ultra 5) kgcc is
the "real" gcc.
