I got a working compiler built with ! If you recall, this is a dependency I need to build , the build system used by apps and many others.

Don't get too excited though, it's only the first of a very long bootstrap chain. That kotlin I built is from 2012, the last that did not require kotlin to build.

This is all thanks to the excellent work done by Emmanuel Bourg, at, on top of which I bootstrapped all other dependencies.

I already had a broken implementation of the first compiler, so I adapted most of it to use the versions from Emmanuel. Then spent two evenings on packaging these versions and fixing the remaining issues (eg. asm4 not working with java8, packaging protobuf 2.5, …)
