That's right. There is a "new system compiler" and it is called Aldor.
But the Aldor compiler from cannot be distributed with any of
the PanAxiom systems (Axiom, OpenAxiom, FriCAS), because they are all
under a BSD-License and Aldor is only semi-free. Tightly integrating the
Aldor compiler into PanAxiom would require a license change to the
semi-free APL2 .

This license is also the reason why there is currently no development on
Aldor anymore. :-(

If you want a "new system compiler", then help to free Aldor.
