I want to complie a few open source applications I really like for my Mac. Problem is I am not 100% sure as to how to make My mac do that.

So I am wondering:
  • How do I get the latest version of GCC on my mac?
  • Would I do the Compiling in a regular console or X11

I have a very limited amount of experience in this area, but I will tell you this. When I compile HandBrake builds I simply open X11, then open the console, point it to the HandBrake directory and type "make". That's it.

That's all of my experience in this area.

You need to install the Developer Tools off your installation disks. This will give you all the GNU tools for C, C++ and Objective C, Java, all the SDKs and the Xcode development environment.

Go to the extras on my installation disks? That will give me the basic stuff I need, will mac in all of its flexible unix-like wonder let me compile the newer versions?

The developer tools will get you the tools to compile the source. Most projects will have a make file to make building them easier. Make sure you read the README and other documentation before you start building your project. It is just like making it for *nix system.

I just use the terminal.
