I haven't used MathLink under Windows 2000 does it have the mcc program?  If so
the mcc -o addtwo add.c should work not gcc.  If you must use gcc you
have to include the external files to be linked with in the command, the
specifics should be in the documentation in the Help Browser under
Add-Ons/Mathlink Library/System-Specific/(your OS here).
