We have seen GCC 4.2 disappearing after Lion upgrades and Xcode 4.2 installs.

And Esteban, I do not think that changing the systems default compiler just for a single program can be the recommended practice.

"sudo rm /usr/bin/gcc" is certainly only the very last resort.
It should not be advertised if there are other ways to use a supported compiler.
Camillo mentioned that setting the CC environment variables correctly worked for him.
