I actually used Pascal instead of C on purpose, so as not to get distracted by 
the language front end implementation.  I wanted to focus my efforts on the 
libjit core.  C is a pretty quirky language to compile, and the libc 
necessary to perform even simple tasks is far from trivial.

But anything is possible.  If someone else wants to take on this task, then I 
won't say no to adding it to the tree.

You might want to check out CINT, an interpreter for C that has been around 
for a while: "";.  It may be easier to plug 
libjit into that than build a C front end from scratch.
