Slackware comes with a fairly good set of programming and development tools, and so does Gentoo. Most distros come with gcc at least, but whatever tools you need can always be downloaded and installed on just about any distro.

It really depends on what your needs are. is a good place to find out about many distros.

I agree both slackware and Gentoo are great for development work. In my expeience though most distros don't come with GCC installed, not by default anyway. Every distro I know of though does allow you to install it afterwards (except livecds for obvious reasons).
