This may not quite be what the original poster asked for (I lost the
original posting), but a search via archie lists the following sites
with a full OCCAM system. From the README:

Two things to note though:

1) This package is rather old.

2) I remember picking this package up a couple of years ago, and it churns
out (to my knowledge) ONLY Vax/Tahoe assembler code (as stated above). If
you're willing to try porting it to another architecture, more power to
you. 8-)

The sites are:
