Re: Wanting to start coding for AmigaOS4.x from scratch

I'd recommend VBCC over GCC for these reasons:
- It's amiga native
- It's easy to setup and use
- It has all sensible compiler warnings enabled by default (with GCC you have to remember to use -Wall switch which also enables also some very stupid ones like the double parenthesis thing)
- Better m68k/ppc code generators
- Crosscompiling for all Amiga-like OSes except AROS available on all targets
- You can send bug reports to Frank Wille/Volker Barthelmann and they are usually handled very quickly

Only advantage I can see with using GCC is if you're porting stuff from Linux or other Unix-like OSes. For Amiga native code you can just as well use VBCC, and it's not like switching from VBCC to GCC later if needed is very hard to do.
