Excellent!  We'll accept that since you're complaining about it, you're 
willing to improve the documentation yourself.  Many of the open source 
projects currently being developed suffer from a dearth of documentation
because the developers are too busy trying to improve them to write 
instructions.  There are just not enough unselfish folks like you who are 
frustrated enough with what's there to sit down and improve it for others' 

If you'd like to get some beginning help, check out the docs at 
www.linuxdoc.org.  Here again, keep in mind that this documentation is 
written by volunteers and enthusiasts.  And you put your finger on it; gcc
is a development tool, meant for a developer audience, a fierce crowd of 
staunch techno-nerds if ever there was one.  You can also find good help
at the O'Reilly publisher's website, www.oreilly.com, where many beginners
go to learn how to be techno-nerds.

Again, excellent!  The best way to show that appreciation is to keep careful
notes and help out!  If you get really stumped, there are probably people on
this list who would be willing to straighten you out in return for monetary
compensation, as well.
