right now we have 2 steps, build the compiler, then use the new compiler 
to build tests and runtime as well as modules. Since I need part of the 
runtime for the compiler in my case, it cannot work like this, unless 
enough of the runtime is Java to run the parts of the new compiler I am 
using. This should be the case, but can be trouble in the future.
