Phoenix builds WRK

Microsoft Phoenix is a compiler framework toolkit which allows for writing compiler front-ends (for programming languages), back-ends (for other target architectures than x86 and amd64), plus several tools and code optimizers.

Providing such a variety of opportunities, we tried to build the WRK with Phoenix, and it worked! However, we had to disable all optimization in the compiler.
