Looks nice!  How do it compare to tcc?  (http://www.tinycc.org/)

Well at only 1,607 lines of code:
an order of magnitude smaller
less dependencies
simpler build
less complete support for c99
No optimization phase
No preprocessor (nor need for one)
Doesn't support // line comments

Generally what you'd expect for a compiler optimized for bootstrapping bigger 
compilers
