It's kind of fun thinking of "bootstrapping" a trusted compiler from some old sources. Like some sort of master handing down their tools to the apprentice.
"Now, I bestow upon you my most trusted C compiler...artisanally compiled from ancient scrolls using only an 8088 chip"
The oldest thing I have is also the first C compiler I ever used, the ECO-C88 on 5.25" floppy.
p.s. Also I just looked up that Ken Thompson paper, and it credits " Unknown Air Force Document" for the idea (!!)
@vu3rdd Hmm, I think maybe I have (or something like it). Great stuff! I didn't know Guix was using it, cool.
