Straight forward, unoptimized code generation is not terribly
difficult. Optimized code generation can be extremely difficult.

I've never seen any x86 generator for Small-C, however TCC is a small
open source (but not PD) C compiler that does have one. TCC is a bit
more complex than Small-C, but it is well written and fairly easy for
a beginner to comprehend. see http://bellard.org/tcc/
