You are going to need to get the gcc binary package for your distribution. It is the chicken and the egg syndrom. GCC was built with GCC so you need GCC to compile GCC

Read the Linux from Scratch book.....
it tells exactly how to build a compiler to compile programs..........
and where to install it so your $HOST system won't get the "two different compilers" confused.
