That sounds like a good idea. I experimented a bit with this, I
basically copied that what was done in orbit2. But as the vala sources
are patched, trying to build the native valac now also requires valac,
so I need to compile the code *before* the RISC OS patches are applied.
How can I accomplish that?

I put in this to the valac setvars:

# Build vala compiler natively:
CC=/usr/bin/gcc ./configure $AB_CONFLAGS --disable-shared
cp compiler/valac $GCCSDK_INSTALL_ENV/bin

make clean
