Gcc has already been ported to the propeller II, (and it runs on the 
original propeller too), so porting other languages should be 
"relatively" easy.  I've not made the attempt to port anything yet 
though, mostly because I've been out of the propeller world for a couple 
years, and now that the version 2 is out, I'm trying to reestablish some 
working environments so I can use the propeller 2.  I have bought some 
of the mystery boxes, which gave me a propeller 2 edge board with 32MB 
of ram, but I don't think I have an actual propeller 2 just yet.  
Needing others to id things for me is making the list of products I have 
hard to create, but I'm getting there.

Anyway, since gcc exists, any compiler that uses gcc as the backend 
should be possible to port.  I've thought about porting FPC, but I'd 
have to start with a version that's already meant for smaller systems, I 
do believe someone posted a link to one a few months ago, perhaps that 
one could be used as a jumping off point, would be interesting to see 
pascal available for the propeller boards.
