ACK, I bootstrap with/from it on ia32 under Linux (provides a complete
toolchain under a clean BSD license, even though the C library ported
from Minix is pretty ancient). It is also meant to be retargetable.

On Minix it can be downloaded and run, either on Minix-2 or early
Minix-3, the compiler is the same in both cases.

The newest compiler code is avaiable from either Sourceforge or Github
(maintained by David Given) but this does not include any complete

On Linux the corresponding C library ported by yours truly is not yet
published (in use for quite some time but I do not have time to care
about releases). If you target ia32, you can get the code as-is, but
then you will have to figure out how to bootstrap and build it.

The availability of the Linux ABI covers also FreeBSD and NetBSD if you
mean to target those platforms, more porting/tweaks for different
OSs was also done by Robert Nordier
