   You are going to have serious trouble building gcc, largely because
   there are so many hacks in our gcc tree to make it work under
   NetBSD. It is doable, but it isn't going to be just a question of
   compiling it.

actually, it's not that difficult.  gcc 2.95.2 is available in
pkgsrc/lang/gcc and supports several netbsd platforms..

gcc-current itself supports i386-netbsdelf, (but not 3.0* yet).
GDB 5.0 has support, and binutils beyond 2.11.2 also includes
support (in binutils-current and the remaining 2.11* series.)
