The instruction of installing gnu tools are mostly the same as the page
you referred, the only broken links are for GDB (gdb and insight),
you can get 5.2 instead (just modify the links slightly or use anonymous
ftp) since 5.0 links are not available anymore. I use the command line
GDB 5.2 and it works fine, insight installation was not successful
for me but may because I have the wrong tcl version. I did not
work on it more since command line gdb is good enough for me.
Make sure you follow the instructions PRESICELY, get the exact
version of binutils/etc. as in the page, not later versions since they
may not work. I build the tools from sources as instructed by that page,
am not aware of how to get the binaries.

Use ecos from CVS tree, don't use 1.3.1, it's very old and not recommended.
