As long as it doesn't break your system by removing a bunch of important dependencies, I would remove the version of gcc you have installed from yum, and compile the version of GCC you need from source. I've had issues like this before where a 32 bit version of a program I wanted was looking for 32 bit versions of the libraries from GCC, so I basically downloaded the version I needed in 32 bit and extracted them to /usr/lib32 instead of just /usr/lib. You could try manually placing the libraries your program is looking for in the directories they would normally be in, as long as you aren't overwriting files that are already there from something that came from your package manager.

gcc IS on the dvd install disk
it IS also in the fedora BASE repo
su -
----- your root password when asked for ----
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
and have a look at the yum manual
man yum
--- or the yum help page 
yum --help
but why fedora 16 ?
fedora 17 is the current version

you might also want to read the fedora documentation
