gcordoba is on a distinguished road

Hello,
I just brought this Mac two weeks ago. I do not know if the operative system is Leopart or Snow-Leopard (how to know?).
As developer, I need to use gcc and gfortran. Following some google advices, I proceeded to install Xcode, with a supposed success: gcc was not found. Then, I installed SDX but the same happened. Then, I decided to download gcc4.3, but I only found an experimental gcc4.5 in sourceforce.net, gcc was installed apparently with success, but when I try to compile a simple example this was reported:
gcc: error trying to exec 'as': execvp: No such file or directory

After that, I sent Xcode to trash and installed SDX again, I searched for the included gcc4.2 version and installed it. Then I tested gcc and gfortran resulting in:
for the c version (one line program, which prints "hi"):

urcuninaownloads gustavocordoba$ gcc tmp.c
tmp.c:2:19: fatal error: stdio.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

By droping the include command (which of course is a programing mistake), the compilation reports:

urcuninaownloads gustavocordoba$ gcc tmp.c
tmp.c: In function ‘main’:
tmp.c:3:2: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ‘printf’
gcc: error trying to exec 'as': execvp: No such file or directory

By compiling the fortran version of the same program it results in:

urcuninaownloads gustavocordoba$ gfortran tmp.f
gfortran: error trying to exec 'as': execvp: No such file or directory

By doing some google search, the people only advice to reinstall Xcode, which I already did several times.

This problem is driven me crazy, as my research have become blocked by this problem.

Please, can any one help me?
With best regards,
Gustavo
