IT installed XCode, here's another? command line tools sans XCode available 
from Kenneth's github,

However another irony, now that XCode is installed, in the new XCode 4.4 
command line tools are not installed by default, so I found my way to 
Preferences, Downloads, Command Line tools Install checkbox... it's 
downloading (similar to watching paint dry)

You can download just the command line tools from, which is ~100 MB instead of a couple 
of gigs. Has been like this for some time now. You just have to be careful 
with some older code not compiling properly with LLVM.
