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.

3:  Once we have the basics running, *then* maybe we can talk about compile
