Yes and no. Yes in that you need to install the Xcode Commandline Tools (aka gcc/clang, make, git, etc) and No in that you do not need to download and install the whole Xcode GUI app & tools if you’re only building things on the command line.

As of OSX 10.8 or so, you can run the following to install the commandline tools:

    xcode-select —install

This will open a dialog box where you can click “Install”. There is no need for a login, or App Store, or whatever.
