  I hesitate to throw this in being a LOT less specific but...

has links to recipes all of which involve setting up GCC in
ways you don't see while simply playing with a distribution
like SuSE or Red Hat.  There is a lot to be learned by reading
them including cross compiling, compiling for an environment
with non standard paths, etc.  It's probably way more involved
than you want to get but worth mentioning.
