Eric, Walt,
I need relatively newer than gcc 4.1.1 that can be  just copied from tar file simply to /usr/local without any operation. 
I tried to install the gcc 4.6.0 compiler from gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1.aix5.2.ppc.rpm  by rpm utility,
but I got messages about  dependencies.
rpm -Uvh --force gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1.aix5.2.ppc.rpm              
error: failed dependencies:                                          
gcc = 4.6.0-1 is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1                   
AIX-rpm >= is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1              
AIX-rpm < is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1               
/bin/sh   is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1                       
libc.a(shr.o) is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1                    libgmp.a( is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1            libiconv.a(shr4.o) is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1               libmpc.a( is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1            libmpfr.a( is needed by gcc-cpp-4.6.0-1 
Can I find a simple newer version of gcc to be copied to /usr/local without all those annoying steps ?

Thanks for the reference. I did find this reference with the Wiki
documentation earlier and found this exceedingly helpful.

I appreciate your response.

One is for AIX, one for the System p, and one for the Open Source
Packages. The likely candidate is Bull's freeware and shareware for
AIX. Is this  compatible for the IBM i at V6R1M0 within AIX? If not,
is there a binary available elsewhere?

The Young i Professionals web site has instructions and tooling
available to
install rpm packages on IBM i from the AIX Toolbox for Linux site.  One
the packages available is the gcc compiler.  See here for details:
