Sigh.  'as' is part of binutils.  It contains the assembler and linker
and you will not be able to do a thing with regards to compiling
anything until you have it.

But more importantly, binutils is listed in the 'requires' line of
'gcc-core' which means it should have been selected when you chose gcc. 
So whatever you did to install gcc, you somehow managed to seriously do
