ACK is kind of a wildcard that might fit somewhere in-between any of this depending on what exactly it is, but we already know it has some issues. It does presumably work though.
I have read up on how ACK works, from some of the whitepapers on the site. The 6502 code generator's output is absolutely nightmarish. ACK apparently uses a not-so-grand intermediate representation that is responsible for it not being that good at generating code.
Writing our own toolchain... eech. Might have been a neat idea back in the 80's.
Where did all these other toolchains come from, anyway? As far as I am aware (trust me, bcc is pretty hard to find solid information about), the Dev86 toolchain was pretty much just Bruce Evans' work up until the point that the Linux-8086 crew grabbed it and beefed it up further. It might be yucky, but even if yucky, it's an option that would work.
