gcc doesn't work after upgrade

I installed all the updates, and after that, my computer is messed up. gcc doesn't work now, and shows an error message when running c programs as follows
"/usr/local/bin/ld: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

I try to install libbfd, another error pops up:

'checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables."

I found that gcc has been upgraded from gcc-4.1.1 to gcc-4.1.2 after installing those updates. It may be the cause of all the problems.

How can I handle this problem? Thanks!
