Crossworks is based on GCC and my assumption is, that it
should work. Michael Fischer actually used it for the
LPC-E2294 port of Nut/OS. See

The SAM7X is a highly integrated devices. Almost no
external devices are required. Nut/OS may probably run
on all SAM7X boards with none or nearly no modification.
Unlikely, but one point of incompatibility may be the
Ethernet PHY.
