You can buy from Free Software Foundation a manual called "Using and Porting
GNU CC" (Texinfo version is also included in the GCC distribution). It gives
about 200 pages of information on the internals of gcc, organized like a
reference manual. Unfortunately, this manual is not kept up-to-date very well,
and its organization makes it difficult to understand.
