perhaps you might consider cross compiling to more than one platform
with gcc? using a 32 bit platform also opens the option of using a linux
kernel. to begin, you might consider the SH4 platform, which is the Sega
Dreamcast console:ebay has tons for sale - a great 32 bit cross compile
learning platform.

If you want to take this further; 8 bit AVR w/ 32 bit platforms on the
same board, using open source platforms let me know by email.
