Mhm, that is not quite the case.
The reason the default target uses csc is because that is what I use to
develop. When you break the compiler, I do not want to go trough the
length of bootstraping and manually moving things to re-compile the
So I just assume CSC is there to save the day.
The `make test' is there to test the full bootstrap, if I had it using
MCS, and had a broken MCS, I could not bootstrap, so I start with
something that works.
