gcc (well, strictly speaking it's ld but called by gcc) normally gives
executable output files exec permissions when compiling regardless of umask:
$ umask 0002; echo -ne '#include <stdio.h>
int main(int argc, char
", "Hello World!");
}' > x.c; strace -f gcc
x.c 2>&1 | grep chmod
[pid 11229] chmod("a.out", 0775) = 0
Getting EACCESS on a freshly compiled binary often implies that the file
system doesn't allow executable permissions - either it's mounted with
noexec, SELinux is preventing the exec or the file system does not
support executable permissions.
Are you using removable/network storage? What's does mount say?
