I wonder how much it would cost to sponsor compiles-via-c support. I'd love to use zig-the-language but I need to compile for platforms that LLVM does not support, so I would need to use the native C toolchain (assembler/linker at the least, but using the native C compiler seems easier).

There is a semi-maintained (perhaps more accurately “occasionally resurrected”) C backend for LLVM: https://github.com/JuliaComputing/llvm-cbe

Thanks; I was aware of this but last I checked it only supports a subset of LLVM (whatever Julia needed).
