  Definitely.  The gcc programs in /usr/bin are obviously still there, 
how about the contents of /usr/lib/gcc ?

  Do you have backups in a form where you can see what used to be in /usr 
?  If you don't, this is all rather academic.  If you do, compare 
/usr/bin, /usr/lib and its subdirectories, /usr/sbin, and /usr/libexec 
if there was one.
