Good basic idea (using a different system to build on), but there's a
better/easier approach (in the same basic vein): bring up V6, and mount the RK
pack with Mini-Unix on it (it's a V6 file system, so is mountable); V6 is rock
solid running under simulators.
The V6 tools can I'm pretty sure be used directly to build new Mini-Unix
kernels; user program can I think use the V6 C compiler, but I'm pretty sure
not the standard V6 linker (the Mini-Unix linker loads tham at the
non-standard address used by Mini-Unix).
