Aro: A C compiler written in Zig

For contrast, gforth (a prominent Forth interpreter, by Forth standards) generates+compiles+links binding code in C, at runtime, using the ordinary C toolchain. 
A bit 'out there' you may say, but on the plus side this approach enables handling header files and tidily expressing bindings without the need to implement their own C parser.
