I was slightly mistaken about the purpose of build-essential. After
checking the description I now see that it is needed for building Debian
packages. For arbitrary C programs it should be enough to install gcc

You're absolutely right, but there's more than one implementation of the
standard C library (libc6, dietlibc, klibc, probably more). And there
are also programs (like the Linux kernel) that do not use the standard C
