Try running "updtvpkg"

There is an "rpm" package downloadable from the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications, but I don't think that's the same thing

What version of AIX are you at? At a guess it looks like you are trying to install a version of gcc intended for AIX 6.1 (or at least requiring RPM for AIX 6.1) and you are at a lower level..

If you are on AIX 5.3 you should try install a version compiled for that oslevel.

Also, is a great resource for RPM on AIX.
