  A first approximation to a native port would indeed be to produce assembly
  code for an abstract machine that would probably require several native CPU
  instructions per abstract instruction, such that you would in fact produce
  native code and not require any byte-code interpreters.  Once the system
  runs on the new platform, you could change the target assembly language.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
