GNU CC obviously, and the IAR kickstart is free up to 32 kB.

There's the Embedded Visual C/C++ compiler that Microsoft gives away
for Pocket PC applications.  I don't know if you can use it for a
non-Pocket PC target though.

Also have alook at www.codesourcery.com they are sponsored by ARM for the
gcc port.
I always find the best solution is to build your own toolchain, as I find
newlib which seems to be the standard c library is a bit hungry for smaller
arm micros. Especially with the default config options.
I have just built a gcc 3.4.3 based toolchain with uclibc which has a
smaller footprint.

gnu arm as others have mentioned
http://www.gnuarm.com /

http://www.macraigor.com/full_gnu.htm
http://www.macraigor.com/gnu_faq.htm

http://www.codesourcery.com/gnu_toolchains/arm.html

then limited versions of the commerical compilers

Keil and IAR

Keil depending on installed options
either keil beta compiler or gcc(unlimted)
debugger is limited to 16K
http://www.keil.com/arm /
http://www.keil.com/demo/eval/arm.htm
http://www.keil.com/demo/limits.htm

Does Keil actually have the source available
for their packaged gcc ?

IAR
http://www.iar.com/Products/KSDK /
(follow one of the arm chip links)
will also need to get their make app if you need to use asm as well
says 32K but

The keil gcc toolchain is different to most as they use uclibc as the c
library rather than newlib, uclibc can cause licensing problems if building
a static binary. It comes under lgpl rather than gpl.
Keil should provide the source if asked, but I see no ref on their website.
For smaller embedded arm uclibc is a good choice over newlib, it just the
lgpl problems.
