"To get a clean from start you would have to wire up the processor from transistors, design and build your chip fabricators, code your compilers and bootstrap yourself into the modern age."

Not true, if you use multiple sources for the entities at each level and compare their results.

At least, assuming that the same enemy hasn't nobbled *every* supplier at a given level. Choose your suppliers carefully, though, and the probability of that must surely sink to a level that anyone can live with.
