No, he's talking about the gcc272 package that includes version
of gcc:

$ apt-cache show gcc272
Package: gcc272
Priority: extra
Section: devel
Installed-Size: 1596
Maintainer: Debian GCC maintainers <>
Description: The GNU C compiler.
 This is the old version of the GNU C compiler's C part. It should only
 be used for backward compatibility purposes.
