Weird. You have Xcode but not the compiler. I just used the ls command on the command line for that file and it is in my system. I'm running Xcode 3.2.3. If you have that file, then the following might not help.

I'd remove XCode and do a fresh install. By the way, did you download from the iPhone sign on or the Mac OS X sign on? Is your Mac an Intel based model?

Reading the 3.2.5 notes, I see the following removes Xcode when executed in a Terminal window
sudo <Xcode>/Library/uninstall-devtools --mode=all
<Xcode> being the starting path where you installed it. It should have been /Developer.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
