But a copy of the old CBM source archives won't do you much good - to compile them, you need a rather exotic setup involving Sun workstations and a 30 year old proprietary Green Hills compiler. Olsen is the one who reworked that in the nineties, to make it compile using SAS/C and GCC.

Hang on, where did the GCC reference come from?

The Kickstart/Workbench 3.1 build, like its direct precursors, were built using three compilers only: the Green Hills Software 'C' compiler version 1.8.2E, the Lattice 'C' compiler version 5.10 and the SAS/C compiler version 6.50. GCC was never part of this, and not in my work either.

Part of the task I took on involved reducing the number of compilers involved for this particular build, moving/porting components to SAS/C where Lattice 'C' and the Green Hills Software 'C' compiler were not strictly required.

The later versions (4, 5 and 6) of the Amiga Lattice and SAS compilers were created specifically to build the Amiga operating system with it, as Commodore gradually moved to native development. These compilers were specifically adapted to work with modest memory requirements and to use the Amiga operating system ABI by default. All of this work was done years before there was a robust and mature Amiga port of the GNU 'C' compiler.

OS4 - which is based on the work you did - is compiled with GCC. I should have added "later on", to make that more clear.
