That's a chicken-egg problem.  To  compile gcc, you need a C compiler.
You don't have any C compiler installed on your system. /usr/ucb/cc is
saying you that you don't have  it. Since you don't have a C compiler,
you can't compile gcc.

You should  get a binary distribution  of gcc (any version)  or of any
other C  compiler for  your system,  and then use  it to  compile this
version of gcc.
