Did you check if gcc package is there? Also share output of following:-
Code:
~$ which gcc
~$ echo $PATH
~$ find / -name "gcc" -print
If gcc not found, try:-
Code:
~$ sudo yum install gcc

Better : 1) su

2) yum install gcc-c++
I.e. by installing gcc-c++, the packages required for gcc to function,
will also be installed. ( glibc-devel glibc-headers kernel-headers ).

RHEL is a comercial OS.
The OS can be used when you pay the licence / subscription. Else not.

Don't want to pay ? Then do not use RHEL.
Please install the identical free version instead : CentOS 6.3 .
