I'd still recommend installing a fresh binary...
Assuming, of course, that the problem is with dependencies.
I'd suggest doing a clean install of a precompiled GCC binary from a new RPM. When installing, pay close attention to any errors or warnings. If there are any dependency problems, he should get very clear and unmistakable error messages to that effect.
Whichever approach he takes, it should be pretty easy to resolve the problem.
The problem might even be a $PATH problem! It wouldn't hurt to try the following:
find / -name gcc -print 2> /dev/null
2. Go away for a a cup of coffee or a walk around the block ;-)
3. If anything is printed (like "/usr/bin/gcc"), then make sure that directory is
in your $PATH.
