Arch Wiki is very clear about this:

The submitted PKGBUILDs must not build applications already in any of 
the official binary repositories under any circumstances. Check the 
official package database for the package. If any version of it exists, 
do not submit the package. If the official package is out-of-date, flag 
it as such. If the official package is broken or is lacking a feature, 
then please file a bug report.

"If any version of it exists, do not submit the package."

But I think gcc is a specific case which I will not get involved in 
submitting a deletion request for it, but I have asked about it in 
#archlinux-aur channel on Libera to see what are others' opinions.
