At the top of http://gcc.gnu.org/readings.html there's Hans-Peter
Nilsson's "Porting GCC for Dunces" - based, I think, on an old thesis
about porting GCC to the CRIS processor.

I looked at this a while ago and my impression was that it gave a good
overview with a few sketch details. You'll find yourself referring back
to the GCC manual before long, though.

Hope that helps,
