Hm, for the simulator you should be able to use pretty much any gcc version
(at least >= 3.0 something), since the simulator is native code.

For the arm-elf version you should probably use 4.0.3, and on just about any
Linux system you get that downloaded, built and installed fine with the
tools/ script and there should be no problems on any recent
Fedora system to run that!

If you wanna play with compiler versions that aren't the recommended ones,
then I suggest you do test them out on actual targets to verify that they
still work fine!
