However, in the not-too-distant future, things may change. Gcc and Metrowerks are both adopting an Intel-defined ABI standard. (CodeWarrior has partial support now, I believe, and CW 9 is slated to provide full support. Apple can tell you about gcc's support.) Once everyone agrees on the internals, the ABI should cease being a problem. (If you're interested, the gory details are available at http://www.codesourcery.com/cxx-abi/abi.html.)
