mn35,

Simple, brute force:

# find / -type f -name gcc

If it isn't there, go to http://www.sunfreeware.com and get it. You should also get the gnu tools that go with it -- make (the gnu version), automake, autoconf, and whatever dependencies they call for.

Then, it's probably not installed but choogendyk method will tell you for sure.

man gcc doesn't give anything.
This isn't a reliable test as manual pages won't be in the MANPATH anyway.

I have cc in /usr/ucb/cc

do i download gcc, compile it with cc then use it ?
No, forget about /usr/ucb/cc which is there for historical reason (BSD compatibility for SunOS 4 users in the nineties) and is then of no use for you.
