I believe GCC won't directly generate 'parallel' code. Are you sure
there is any compiler at all, free and cheap or not, that could
generate code that makes use of 28 or so processors? I very much doubt
Instead, to make use of many processors, I'd suggest to take the more
traditional approaches: MPI, PVM, multi-threading,
completely-decoupled operating system processes (batch processing).
