What about llvm? It was primary designed to support GCC based C and
C++ front-ends but currently it also supports:
- Accurate GC
- tail calls
- output for x86, PowerPC, IA-64, Alpha, SPARC V9, and portable C.
- a lot of (program wide and/or profile-guided) analyses and
Are there arguments against llvm?
