that’s all you should need (plus the supporting tools, which you will

If you have no working C compiler at all, well, that gets a bit tricky
I once did a full toolset build of GCC and friends on Tru64 UNIX – I
can poke around and see if I still have the scripts. Essentially, IIRC
the first thing you need to build is GNU make, then the core tools and
bin tools, then gcc itself. Finally, you put the whole enchilada at the
head of your PATH and build applications, like Ruby. The GNU “configure”
program should be able to work things out for you unless SCO, in their
infinite nastiness, has put things into their code to thwart you.
BTW my scripts also built Perl – do you need that too?
