I bought a new Macbook Pro. Like linux, it has a bash shell. However, I did not find gcc or g++ in there. Is it in there somewhere, or is there some kind of package manager that will allow me to easily add it in?

You need to install the XCode tools from here.

You shouldn't need to download XCode - it should be on your install disk under Optional Installs. – Steve Folly Feb 4 '10 at 6:32

In XCode, go to the XCode menu, followed by Preferences, Downloads, and then click on the Install button.
