Default GCC in src tree or in ports tree

Does The GCC that contained in "src" is complete/Comprehensive or I should to obtain GCC/GLIBC from "ports" too? (I just use C/C++ compiler & Library [glibc] )
I suppose that the "src" tree must contain gcc, atleast for "Make" utility". Am I right?

You don't need to GCC from ports in order to compile C/C++ programs, the version of GCC distributed with FreeBSD is fine.

Also note there are multiple flavors of make, which are not always compatible. Probably the most popular version is GNU Make (devel/gmake) which is not the same as the make flavor that ships with FreeBSD.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.

You should only use one of the lang/gccXY ports when you need GCC version X.Y.* and can't live without it.

If you release your software in FreeBSD ports with a dependency on GCC, you mayl also be cursed at if there isn't good reason, and I don't mean extra --flags :-P. I know I cuss at having to keep lang/gcc45 installed because of some port that requires it.
