Building ARM toolchain

Dear all,

I would need to compile software for ARM architecture on my x86 machine.
If I am not wrong I should compile gcc and I also should have the kernel headers.

But I am quiet confused which target should I pass to gcc.

I would appreciate if someone could help me.
Thank you in advance.

I'm not an expert, but I know there's various ARM chips, and each needs its particular toolchain. This seems to be popular for building toolchains: crosstool-ng.
It's probably available as a package, for whatever distro you're using.
