Are you sure? I just went there an tried to download their gcc and was never 
presented with any license. There is some stuff that "requires a valid APSL 
registration", but gcc and gcc3 are not among them.  See the page 

One thing that *might* be problematic is that CVSWeb requires this same 
registration. But an APSL agreement and registration to access their central 
source control repository is a much different thing than having to register 
to get original and derived GPL code. As near as I can tell, all of their 
original and derived GPL code does not require this registration to access.

Not a problem, IHMO.
