You should ask this on the gfortran mailing list, not here.  The wiki
pages state this.

And your problem is exactly what you'd expect to happen if you don't
have the correct mpfr and gmp libs installed.  They are used by the
sub-processes (cc1, cc1plus, f951) but not the front-end drivers (gcc,
g++, gfortran), which means --version or --help would work but no actual
compiling.  The wiki also says this.  Install the required packages
(libgmp3 and libmpfr1).
