Okay. By default, the program will link with the Angel interfaces provided
in newlib. The libgloss module on sources.redhat.com has support for linking
apps to run on RedBoot targets. With that built and installed, you can do
something like:

  % arm-elf-gcc -specs=redboot.specs -o hello hello.c

This links to 0x20000.

You can specify a different address like this:

  % arm-elf-gcc -specs=redboot.specs -Ttext=0xc000 -o hello hello.c

Yes. That's basically how it works.
