If you do not want to build cross compiler, it is simple. Download the
source, please use the gcc-4.5 and my patches based on changes from
official haiku buildtools

At least hello world program works.

~> uname -a
Haiku localhost 1 r36330 Apr 16 2010 16:41:52 BePC Haiku
~> cat hello.m
#import <stdio.h>

int main( int argc, const char *argv[] ) {
    printf( "hello world\n" );
    return 0;
~> gcc hello.m -o hello
~> ./hello
hello world
~> gcc -v
