It was a cross compiler.  The compiler ran on TOP-10 and generated code 
that would run
on C.MMP (a 16-way shared memory multiprocessor PDP-11) running Hydra (a 
very cool
capabilities based OS).  I still have my copy of the "Hydra Songbook" 
which is the manual
that describes all of the K-calls (kernel calls) and the basic 
application environment.
