How familiar are you with unix? Using Linux/FreeBSD only for compiling
doesn't make much sense. You should completely move all your developemnt
onto unix. Otherwise it may be better to try compile gcc-avr on win32
If you prefer to go with unix, you may use instructions from
http://www.kieltech.de/uweswiki/ or FreeBSD port. There's little
difference between patches on http://www.kieltech.de/uweswiki/ and Joerg
Wunsch's work, beside that Joerg's patches supports two devices more. If
you would use something debian based, I have packages for Debian sarge
of: gcc-avr-3.4.4, binutils-avr-1.16.1 and libc-avr-1.4.0 with Joerg
Wunsch's patches applied.

You have to decide. If you won't succeed to compile it on windows, you
always have time to give it a try on unix.
