That's a very common first-goal with languages. I can think
of several off the top of my head:
Gwydion Dylan (http://www.gwydiondylan.org) uses Dylan to code
the compiler, bootstrapping from a small subset of Dylan
written in C.
NHC98 (http://www.haskell.org/nhc98) is written in Haskell, though
it emits C as its "output", which is then compiled to native code.
Clean (http://www.cs.kun.nl/~clean) is now written mostly in Clean.
