C compiler for pdp-11 under RSX (actually RT-11)

I have had bad experiences with the Whitesmith C compiler under

First, relatively small modules of code (200-250 source lines)
would not compile. Pass 2 complained of no memory space. This made
partitioning of the program into inconvenient modules a neccesity.

Second, the "open" function destroyed the "onexit" (Whitesmith
added function) chain making the Whitesmith exit handler practically
useless (unless you opened EVERY needed file before intializing
the exit handler).
