Sounds very clever.  So you are cross-compiling to Linux/ARM on the Mac.  Is
it a custom-built gcc tool chain?

I am targeting amd64 linux native and win32 with the mingw32 cross-compiler.
Have been playing a bit with the mGStep code with the author and made
progress (Foundation builds with some warnings) but needing information
about the mframe macros to allow DO to build on amd64.  I'm sure the
mingw32/win32 build will have quite a lot to sort out.
