You clearly don't have much experience at this sort of thing, or you 
would know that for anyone to help you with building gcc here, you would 
need to give lots more information (what version of gcc?  What 
compiler/version are you using to build it?  What configuration?  What 
error messages? etc., etc.).

Unless you have some overwhelming reason for building gcc on Vista, I 
simply would not bother.  Download a pre-built binary and use that.  If 
you are looking for a native gcc, use <http://www.mingw.org>.  If you 
are looking for a cross-platform gcc of some sort, there are pre-built 
binaries for most targets - ask google, or give more information when 
asking here.
