The compiler generates assembly language and passes it to gas to be converted
to object code.  It sounds like you may be missing the assembler.  Running
gcc with the -v option will show you the commands it is attempting to
execute.  (I know that when I first installed djgpp, I initially thought that
I didn't need the assembler because I wasn't going to be writing assembly
language, so I didn't bother to download it.)
