Read what the nvidia readme says about gcc, it's not broken your just using a gcc that the nvidia installer dont know.

The version check is not a function of the gcc versions the installer does or doesn't know about, it's a function of which compiler was used to build the kernel (i.e. the compiler listed in /proc/version vs. cc -v). Note that the NVIDIA cc version check is more forgiving than Linux 2.6's module version magic mechanism is, which requires that the exact same version of gcc be used for loadable modules, rather than a version considered compatible by the NVIDIA driver; modules failing the kernel's test are rejected by the loader.

I think the problem might be that you have no cc. You can check this by typing 'which cc' at the prompt. If it returns with a complaint that cc could not be found, you can easily fix this by making it a link to gcc; on my system, I would do 'ln -s /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/cc'. (An alternative is to set the CC environment variable to point to gcc, but the former solution might prevent future problems, since some packages depend on its existence.)

The most common reason for the failure is the absence of /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/include/linux/version.h (kernel source not installed or configured, ...).
