Are the compile tools under the GPL?

You can use gcc to compile in GNU/Linux.

However the lcc compiler included there which compiles the qvms is not free software (not GPL'ed, BSD Licensed, or whatever. And you can assume it's not "open source" either). The license puts limits on commercial redistribution.

edit:
I've uploaded the code to http://www.freewebs.com/yapb/eva.html. If you have problems downloading you can get it here.

I meant the map compiling tools.

the map compiling tools, as well as other utilities included in the distributions, are GPL'ed.

I just looked into it. The map tools are free for non commercial use only.

I think you've downloaded the wrong file. Please download the file named "quake3-1.32b-source.zip" if you are downloading from the Id Software ftp.

What is the "qvm"? Is this some kind virtual-machine like Java? If so, what language it uses? Or is this just a name for a C++ library?

"Is this some kind virtual-machine like Java?" - Yes, and it uses the standard C language. However you can't use C++ or some functions in standard C library but not implemented in Id Software's code. Quake3 is also able to use native machine code, and I don't think this qvm is a good idea.
