No there is no gcc available because I am trying to make a 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?
