Strange that you should ask.  My port suddenly started generating code

AFAIK, there are no released GCC versions that support pre-i386 x86
targets.  DJ Delorie has written a port, but it is old.  Someone else
has updated that port (forgot the name momentarily), but I don't know
how well it works.

(I've done a i8086 port pretty much from scratch, and it shows.  I have
a cc1 that seems to compile *very* simple code, but the GCC build breaks
when it gets to building libgcc.)

GNU as does support 16-bit ix86 code; it has for the past three years or
