It depends on some patches outside the arc directory.  Some submitted as
separate patches, some not, but none of them reviewed.  Some documentation
is incomplete or not written yet (.texi patches tend to cost more effort
merging long-term than to write).

You'd also need another version of binutils for ARCompact support -
this is available as binutils-arc-20081103-branch on sourceware, but not
fully up to GNU coding standards.

Yes, a Free simulator is available on sourceware with the tag
arc-sim-20090309 .
