Nvim-treesitter checkhealth `cc executable not found`

I’m using vimPlugins.nvim-treesitter.withAllGrammars.

In the health check, I get an error that the cc executable is not found.

Is it necessary or do I already have all grammars compiled via withAllGrammars?

Followed instruction from

Try something along nix shell nixpkgs#gcc --command nvim -c TSUpdate all or nix-shell -p gcc --command nvim -c TSUpdate all

That seems mutative…

You should be fine as long as you don’t try to imperatively install grammars

Yes, it will mutate files in your home directory. But so will neovim anyway (otherwise it wouldn’t ask for a C/C++ compiler), if that eases your mind.

However, I am also not too happy with my suggested workaround. Would be nicer to specify GCC as a dependency somehow…
