You provide too little information to allow others to provide any real
help, so this reply must be very vague also...

What are the source and target languages? If the compiler translates,
for example, a proprietary query language to SQL, no (or minimal)
porting is required.

If it needs to translate a conventional programming language to native
code, consider modifying it to produce code for a different high level
language (C/lisp/python/tcl etc.) and use a existing compiler as your
code generation backbend.

There are translators from Fortran to other languages, so you do not
necessarily have to use fortran77.
