The only other free C++ compiler is TenDRA written by people at DERA (now
known as Qinetiq or DSTL). Intel has one that can be used for 
noncommercial purposes.

Can't you use one of the meta commands to compile stuff in emacs? Have you 
got the modes working and checked out the keys binding?

Otherwise it sounds like you want an IDE (integrated development
environment) like Eclipse from IBM... Check the google directories or
freshmeat for other IDEs.
