I'm looking for a small, simple, understandable compiler that can run quickly 
in a small amount of memory.

gcc 4.x takes something like 300 megabytes of memory to rebuild itself.  
There's no _way_ you can self-host it on a small embedded system like a 
zaurus.  Even if you gave it a microdrive or something to swap to, it would 
take days.
