my understanding is that DKA merely defines a new target architecture for GCC, and for convenience includes the compiler as well. If this is true, shouldn't it be fairly simple to update a pre-existing installation of GCC to target the ARM/Thumb processor? The reason this is a concern for me is that I would like to work on my code while at school, but I can't install a new installation of GCC. Perhaps I will just burn off a CD with all the tools on it. Anyway, a little more detail: At home I work on Windows XP, at school I work mostly on Solaris 9, but I also work on OS X sometimes. I have DKA at home, but only GCC at school. Any suggestions?

I believe you do have to compile GCC with the ARM as the target CPU, at the very least you will need the source tars for binutils, gcc and newlib, I remember compiling it for the mipsel-pcx-ecoff target back in 1999 to write code for the PlayStation (eagerly counting the seconds for march 24 to start hacking the PSP now).

If you already have the compiler and want to run it from a CD, then I believe what you would have to do is to modify the gcc enviroment variables so they point to the GCC configuration on the CD, I've never done it, but it is worth the try, good luck.
