Does any know of any public domain benchmarks that can be used to test
a compiler and language against other compilers and languages?

[Lots. If you amended your question to "meaningful" or "useful"
benchmarks, I'd say not really. As people have learned with the
SPECmark suite, compiler benchmarks turn out to be very sensitive to
individual optimizations and other compiler warts that may or may not
make much difference in real life. -John]
