We are quite happy with Eclipse.

You can use Eclipse with minor modifications for cross-development.
The CDT (C/C++ Development Tools) project provides anything needed to edit
C/C++ files, build projects and start an external debugger (using the gdb
machine interface).

You need to provide:
- A Makefile for your project (should be there anyway)
- A gdb-script invoked when a debugging session starts.
