AFAIK 64-bit XP does not have a gcc port. If you mean 32-bit XP,
start by choosing and installing a pre-built gcc such as those included in
http://www.cygwin.com/ (probably best for rebuilding gcc)
or
http://www.mingw.org/download.shtml  (normally built by a cross-compiler 
running in linux?)

The standard recipes for building gcc and cross compilers apply, with 
relatively minor changes.  Look at gcc-testsuite reports, as well as the 
configure options in the pre-built compilers, to get hints about configure.
