I don't think you need to re-invent the wheel. There are many pre-built ARM gcc toolchains available - this one is one of them:

It's take only 2-3 hours to build.. you don't need to install all stuff like grub and things like that.. install binutils, gcc and glibc.. with the extension for you microcontroller... you choose the arch in binutils and after you just add a -mcpu <your arch> or something like this in your shell variable
