Which program is triggering the error?

The gcc library is part of the original redhat install and it is there
on 7.3, except that it is a different (older) version than the one your
program wants (.so.4). 

That probably means you are trying to run a binary program that was
compiled under a newer release of redhat. You have to rebuild it under
7.3 or find a version that was compiled in 7.3.
