No, you don't have to use Red Hat's GNUPro tools - you can use the free 
GNU tools.

eCos is dependent on GNU tools yes (of which GNUPro is a variant). Being 
compiler independent makes porting much more difficult (each compiler's 
assembler is different) and reduces functionality (e.g. other compiler's 
do not support important things like ordering of global C++ constructors).
