Its done automatically. Either libgcc-devel or libgcc will satisfy the 
dependencies for gcc48 and older. If neither is installed, they will 
trigger themselves the installation of libgcc, but if libgcc-devel is 
already present they will be happy. gcc49 on the other hand, can only 
use libgcc-devel.
