My favorite for adapting C to new (or old) hardware is LCC.
You only have to rewrite the code generator, and it has a code generator
generator to make it easier. The usual case, as with many Unix C
compilers, is to write out assembly code, and feed it to an assembler.
Since you already have an assembler, it should be pretty fast.
