Is there any documentation on the NCG?  I ported 6.6 to HPUX 11 some time ago
and looked at the NCG but didn't do it for PA-RISC because it was going to take too
much time to understand.  I was leaning towards the approach of trying to translate
the code generator for another processor into PA-RISC.
