gcc is NOT only working under /usr/local
the path will depend on the time you compile it and what path you assign to "prefix"

i.e. ./configure prefix=/usr/global

then gcc binary will be /usr/global/bin/gcc

Hi yellowfish.

At the download site, there is two version (complied and not complied).

I think you refer to the not complied binary. If that is the case you are right.

But if your download the complied version, you have to put in the /usr/local location which the site mentioned.
