Last question: is it possible to have a compiled version of gcc?
(oh, btw, how can i change the PATH permanently so that every time i login my PATH contains also /mnt/us/bin ?)
You can build gcc from source if you want to, but it is a LOT easier to use a prebuilt toolchain, like those suggested by knc1
. Also, check out the tinycc (tcc) thread in the tools index, very handy for on-kindle testing and debugging.
