If you downloaded the standard xcode for OSX it should already be installed to /usr/bin/gcc. If not, you need to reinstall it and follow the instructions on the screen.

Alternatively you can install gcc from your OSX dvd.

Xcode came from the appstore .. does not look like it modified any dir structure to add new programs. – Jam May 15 '11 at 0:30 has it but I would strongly recommend reinstalling xcode and making sure it's grabbing gcc like it should – Blomkvist May 15 '11 at 0:36
