I really think gcc is a must and that too a the complete version because
many users have installed Fedora but don't have internet connection,
sometimes so slow that they can't YUM all the packages they need then it
would be nice & easy for them to simply compile the old versions of tarballs
they have. I am sure most of them would have build them a lot of
time....Don't you think so ?
