Are people interested in a native non-gcc compiler for FreeBSD/alpha?
How happy will people be (scale 1-10) if the compiler could compile
the kernel as well?
Am I right when I say that Compaq's compiler cannot be used to
compile the kernel?
Yes. This is mainly due to lazyness on our part. The Compaq compiler
does not support gcc asm syntanx, so making it compile the kernel
would largely be a matter of converting inline asm (as well as
stepping over other hurdles common to non-gnu compilers).
