How many packages will look for cc instead of gcc (bear in mind lfs is 
pretty gnuish)? Most packages will tell you something like "checking 
for gcc... gcc". I checked a random package (elvis-2.2_0) and amusingly 

No system type was specified, so I'm running uname(1) to guess it...
   Apparently this is 'linux'
   I know 'linux' -- This should be easy!
Looking for some compiler files...
   Internet headers found
   Skipping GNOME due to a temporary configuration bug.  (For more 
      see the comment at the top of the 'configure' script)
   X11 headers found
   X11 libraries found
   GCC found
etc. Compiling a program involves calling configure which chooses what 
compiler to use. I think the link is more for completeness and to catch 
the odd dimwit doing :-)
