The language doesn't have a run-time system, but every implementation I know
of does.

You could theoretically compile the language to machine code, with no run-time
library even to handle common tasks like sorting, but no-one would ever dream
of doing that.

In practice the distribution of functionality between generated code and
called library routines is likely to vary greatly from one implementation to
