        Start here, and you'll be way ahead of the game.

Wrong. The article describes out of date versions of the software. You should use binutils 2.15 or binutils 2.16 (just released), GCC 3.4.3 (3.4.4 is coming out soon, 4.0.0 has been released but is not very well tested, esp. for the avr), avr-libc 1.2.3, avrdude 4.4.0 or uisp 20050207. There are other packages too.

The article also uses deprecated macros in its code examples. These macros are removed in the latest version of avr-libc (1.2.3).

If you're using FreeBSD, a binary distribution is availble via their ports system. If you're using Windows, you can download the WinAVR binary distribution
The open source toolset is also known to build and run on Linux, Mac OS X, and Solaris.

You can ask questions here on the avr-gcc-list, or on the AVR Freaks website where there are very active forums:
