I don't know about the Delta, but I compiled emacs 20 on one of the old
HP machines the FSF had, which I think used a 25MHz* 680x0, and it ran
just fine (I used it every day; it took untold ages to compile though).

I'd really be curious to see how the emacs 21 display engines fares on
such a machine.
