There is some IDEs that use gcc for their compile and link operations.
for example :  
"rhdie" is a Turbo C++ like IDE.
"setedit" is another one.

If you have X windows (graphical system) you can use "KDevelop". It is an IDE for like Visual C++ IDE.(It uses gcc too) (It can generate makefile for you)

"Kylix" is another choice for you. It is a new produce from Borland for C++ Builder and Delphi.
