For those who aren't familiar with tcc, the word "fast" is an
understatement. tcc is so fast compared to a typical C compiler that
you can hardly believe it's actually compiling the code. As a
demonstration, the author produced a bootloader that could boot the
Linux kernel from sourcecode in under 15 seconds.

Interesting. I suppose one downside is that tcc only readily supports
a very limited set of operating systems and architectures.
