No there is no gcc available because I am trying to make a Nix
(https://nixos.org/nix/) package which is a pure and
deterministic approach to building packages.
Because of that only the dependencies which are defined
explicitly are available for the build.
In my case I haven't added gcc as an dependency because I thought
it would work without it.
But if I understand you correctly than it isn't possible to link
without gcc because it's needed for the redirect and there is no
possibility for an override?
