About 4 years ago I was working on a Solaris box without root. I needed GCC, and Solaris didn't have anything installed.
Turns out you just get the GCC source distribution. GCC then goes through a three step bootstrap process where it builds successively more complete versions of itself. I then used the compiler to build the whole apache, php, postgresql, stack with all the needed libraries.
Are you sure the Distribution media doesn't have GCC3 on it as an option, however ? I would be surprised if the DVD didn't have it.
I am using SUSE 10 which uses gcc4. It complains of errors in compiling code which in the past would have been warnings. In order to compile some older code which has not been updated to use gcc4 I would like to install an older copy (gcc3) on the system and also retain gcc4.
