The only problem being that I don't have permission from the original author to rerelease his code in a modified form.  I haven't seen any license information that says that is possible... so until/unless I contact the orginal authors and get their permission to release their (ported by me) library code for others to use, I would be the only one who could compile it.  I believe I could release binaries created with their library, but that isn't much good to you.

Better to wait until others (such as Christian Kruger) have finished their work on a real lynx target I think.
