Sorry, I missed the part about RedHat (yet I cannot find where you said that you went from gcc 2.96 to gcc 3.2.2).
What does it happen when you write in the console gcc and press the TAB key twice (not pressing Enter)?? You see: sometimes the compiler is called gcc-XYY and because the symlink gcc->gcc-XYY is not created, the system thinks there is not gcc compiler. So maybe your path is set correctly, but you have to create the symlink by hand.
You can also try this command. In the root directory (/): find -iname "gcc*". If apt-get succeeded, then you should see a gcc executable in the list (the list may be long, tho).
