You have not selected the gcc package from the Devel category. If you
have trouble managing the category view of the package chooser page
you can click the "View" button until the text after it reads 'Full'.
Then just find out gcc in the list of packages and click on the 'Skip'
text until it changes to the version of gcc you want to install.
