I agree there is much confusion here...
After doing a couple google searches I don't have a clear answer if you
need this or not...
There may be a dependency issue between gcc and build-essential. So it
no build-essential you need but a package that is a subset of that..
Is gcc running ok for you now???
If so don't install.. If it is not running I would install and see if
that fixes the problem
