Rust does have an unfinished GCC front-end by Phillip Herron, but
the main compiler, Rustc, is written in Rust, where in the repo there
is a binary of the last version, which compiles the current version
and the new binary
compiles itself again and only the newest binary is used. Before Rust
compiler was written in Rust, it was in OCaml.

So I don't know what you are talking about, Sylvain BERTRAND.
