I believe GCC will work on AIX, but you most likely need a newer version than what you have. I believe the R-admin manual mentioned success with 2.95.

With regard to your other question: You can compile R w/o having any of those. You just won't be able to build the manuals or use the tcltk package. Go through the R-admin manual carefully to see how to build R without tcltk.
