yes - I looked into this a while back, but the cross-compiler I have
setup for djgpp didn't have enough C runtime support to build lynx (and
building a lot of libraries so I could debug the makefiles is not an
efficient way to develop).  It's complete enough for ncurses.

I've seen several references to ARM, but haven't seen where I could get
a cross-compiler system.  Since I'm not interested per se in any of the
targets, all I'm interested in is where I could find a reasonably
complete (but distinct architecture of course).
