Type this in console:
whereis gcc
This should give you location of this command. Usually its in /usr/bin/gcc
Just type the complete path while executing it and it should be fine.

in redhat, lots of commands are "masked" for users other than a certain root. if you KNOW a command exists but bash is saying it doesn't, try "/sbin/command -blah --bilah-lahf". OR

you could "su -" (with the hyphen), and all commands should have the /sbin in front of them automatically (you still cant see it though)

An alternative explanation is that you simply don't have gcc installed.
