OpenBSD "OpenBSD 5.0 has been published, six months after the release of version 4.9. The OpenBSD project's newest release of the free BSD based UNIX-like operating system includes a number new and updated drivers, performance improvements and new features. OpenBSD 5.0 includes the GNOME 2.32.2, KDE 3.5.10 and Xfce 4.8.0 desktop environments. It also contains a number of new and updated packages including versions 3.5.19, 3.6.18 and 5.0 of the Firefox web browser, PHP 5.2.17 and 5.3.6, LibreOffice 3.4.1, and Chromium 12. The release includes September's release of OpenSSH 5.9." GNOME 2 you say? Huh. Interesting.

The system compiler is GCC 4.2.1 + patches, it is the last GPLv2 licensed version.

The ports tree has GCC 4.2.4 and 3.3.6 for some things that can't be built with the system compiler.

Nothing is preventing you from compiling a newer version yourself, but, it might not actually produce working executables.. and it's not supported.

And yes, ports exist for netbeans 6.9.1, jdk 1.6 and 1.7 (..openjdk).
