I don't have any practical experience with this yet, but with the free
toolset from Xilinx, you should be able to enter VHDL or Verilog and
compile it to one of their parts.  Charmed Labs makes a board for a
GameBoy Advance that adds a Xilinx FPGA and they have samples and
tutorials describing the process.  That might be of assistance to you.
