That or gcc, depending on several things:
- Do you care about C++, Fortran, Objective-C, Ada,...
- How important is code quality
- How do the licenses interact with what you want to do
A number of years ago, I ported GCC to the NUON MPE, which is rather
DSP-like in a number of respects, and was able to get mostly-runnable,
though still ugly, code in about six weeks. Improving it could turn
into a career, if you let it.
