Hello Juanjo,

I have compiled ecls on the Zaurus itself. The bulk of the time (~3h)  
was taken up by compiling the lisp runtime using ecl_min.  Besides I  
hade trouble configuring ecls (repeated errors due to not enough  
space in /tmp), so I had to restart the compilation a few times.

I do not have a cross-compiles for my current desktop setup (Mac OS X  
Intel), so  I would have to build a cross-compiler myself. How is are  
the lisp files compiled using a cross-compiler? I don't see how it  
works, given that the compilation host cannnot execute the ecl_min  

Best regards,

Alexander Shendi
