Actually there is a GNU project developing a C# compiler .... and I think
they have a C->IL compiler built independent of gcc .... From what they say
it's practically impossible to compile code from the GCC AST to stack 
based code . So eventhough gcj can compiler Java to JVM/Native codes ,
gcc cannot compile C to JVM (unless you consider egcs-jvm as an option)..

Also JILC doesn't seem to have IL meta-data output ?
