I looked some time ago on Go.

As it is written in go, you need to go back to the oldest version
written in C and from them forward to the current version.

But looking inside the code/build system I saw a lot of hack and 
Nothing that looks like a test for functionality, just a lot of
assumption on the system.

It will require a lot of time IMHO, but I am not an expert in compilers
