gcc 3.2.x is known to be broken on ARM. It produces bad code for
jffs2, so avoid that version. I think gcc 3.3 fixes that problem, any
some people have reported success.

Having said all that i would recommend the eCosCentric binaries. They
have been well tested with eCos. So these are probably you best bet.
