Also, do the header files actually *require* gcc to be present?
I know it makes sense to have both installed but there are potential
use cases where a user may need only the devel packages but not gcc:

- abrt may need devel packages to generate readable stack traces,
- a user may use a different compiler than gcc (e.g., compat-gcc-34).
