1: Are you going to provide the Makefile glue to do this? If not, then
shut the hell up.
2: We need to get a *basic* compiler up and running first. Give David
a break, ok? There are far bigger problems to deal with first before
futzing around on obscure languages that we have no critical need for
in the base system. We ***NEED*** the ability to compile basic C code
for the sparc64, ia64 and x86-64 platforms. Until that is dealt with,
the rest is a luxury.
