I understod your question as re alocation of disk space.

usualy gcc is isntaled in /usr/local which is on your 93% partition, you dident mention of wich size your disk was, i am suposing it is full, you should change the instalation directory, the easy way is to remove some unused pakages, remove demos, and make the most of space, there are some demos in usr/openwin/demo which are not very useful. another way is to save all your info in a tape and change partition sizes and restore everything again.
another solution is to install it in another place changing in the makefile the instalation directory.
if you need more help describe more your situation.
