I too had a similar problem of wanting to use the GNU tools, specifically the ddd debugger in a windows environment. This was complicated by the fact that I also wanted to have the GMP library available. The solution that I finally ended up with was to use the microsoft compiler Visual C++ Express Edition which is free from Microsoft (not written by microsoft, so it actually works).|
As much as it pains me to say it, it's a fairly intuitive integrated development environmet, and I've been able to compile and run all the software from the GNU side of things that I need..It's not the most elegant solution, but it works..
You can see what needs to be done for GMP and other bits here.
