The best answer to almost any "where can I download" question is to use your distribution's package manager.

That is especially true of a C compiler, where most ways other than the package manager to download a C compiler get you the source code (not binary) of the compiler and first you need to compile it with your C compiler.

I don't think I need to know what a "SunFire X2270" is. But knowing what "RHAT 5.0" is would be needed for any better or more specific answer than "your distribution's package manager".

It appears you mean RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) but you aren't looking to them for support.

If you have an unlicensed (or temporary unsupported license, etc.) for RHEL, you probably should switch distributions rather than struggle with RHEL without support.

If you really did have a good reason for deciding on an enterprise server distribution of Linux, you should either pay for RHEL or switch to Centos.

If you just selected RHEL because you heard about it and aren't really setting up an enterprise server. Switch to a more beginner friendly distribution.
