I work in a group that has several microcontrollers (ISAs) specified or
being specified. Yet, we don't have a compiler yet.

I've been looking at GCC (Using and Porting the GNU Compiler Collection)
and LCC. However, it seems that neither of these compilers is well adapted
to 8- or 16-bit microcontrollers. GCC has only two 16-bit machine definition
files (PDP11 and dsp16xx) and LCC has none.

What would people recommend for the fastest way to get a prototype compiler
working? GCC or LCC? Another compiler with a portable backend?
