It looks like all the SDKs are based on gcc 2.95. I've noticed that gcc 3.4.x has more optimizations for the processor in C1000/C3x00 series.

Are there SDKs available with newer gccs? Or is it difficult to upgrade?

you can build qt/e & qtopia with gcc3, but the problem is that all the object files and libraries are then incompatible with gcc2 code...

you could in theory have two different sets of libraries on the system but it gets very complex too quickly!

from my experience kernel 2.6 only builds with gcc3, so thus for sharp compat you end up with kernel 2.4 with gcc2.9 libraries etc

so, if you really want a sleek optimised experience go with OpenZaurus with 2.6 kernel and gcc3 compiled libraries and applications.
