Installing linux-c6-devtools will give you a C compiler.  There are
many other linux-c6-* ports that install additional libraries, but
none of them install the corresponding headers.  You could download
-devel packages from http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.9/ (os/ and
updates/ subdirectories) and unpack them with tar.
