I tried to compile nimkernel but it failed because of the error above.
my fork is here :

Current Output

main.nim(7, 1) template/generic instantiation from here
main.nim(8, 3) template/generic instantiation from here
main.nim(12, 14) template/generic instantiation from here
ioutils.nim(72, 3) template/generic instantiation from here

C:\Users\test\Nim\lib\system\chcks.nim(23, 11) template/generic instantiation from here
Error: system module needs: appendString
No stack traceback available
To create a stacktrace, rerun compilation with ./koch temp c <file>

I traced down the error and it seems it's located within a template of "/lib/system/indexerrors.nim"

The '&' operator seems not to work but I also didn't expect that.

My workaround-patch (modified indexerrors.nim)

# imported by other modules, unlike helpers.nim which is included
template formatErrorIndexBound*[T](i, a, b: T): string =
  when defined(standalone):
    "index " & $i & " not in " & $a & " .. " & $b

template formatErrorIndexBound*[T](i, n: T): string =
  formatErrorIndexBound(i, 0, n)
