tools for upgrading to Linux 2.6.39


I have started working on linux for about 6 months or so and now I
wanted to compile Linux version 2.6.39. Here are my questions for
the upgrade :

a. How will I get the GCC, Make, BinUtil and other tool dependency
of linux with their versions.

b. After compiling the tools how to make toolchain for linux

I have searched various websites for this. I got information in bits and pieces and for specific linux versions. Is their a site or something where I can get all the information about the upcoming linux upgrades with the details.

My Current Linux machine details are :
Distro : CentOS 4.8
Linux version : 2.6.9
Gcc Version : 3.4.6
Binutils : 2.15.92
Make : 3.80
