[S] Unix Fortran and C Compilers

With all of the recent good information about compiled code used by
Splus, I'm going to ask a compiled code question. Can someone tell me
the purpose of a file which, on my system, is called
"/usr/ucb/cc"
and what the message
" /usr/ucb/cc: language optional software package not installed"
means?

On our new Sun/Unix system we
1. installed Sun's Fortran compiler
2. tried to get by with the GNU C/C++ compiler
3. alias cc=gcc so that share files will recognize our C compiler
4. changed the reference in Splus's S_makefile from CC=cc to CC=gcc for
share files which use Splus COMPILE.

This has worked great for almost all of the Splus libraries we've tried
to load so far. The WorldMaps and robeth libraries, however, are two
libraries which seem to have a problem when they try to access our
/usr/ucb/cc file. Any helpful hints from the snews programming gurus?
