    I tried to withstand a temptation to post a message like "no,
guys, it's better to port ...", but well, I cannot stand the
description of gore people undergo in specifics of porting what they
want to.

    Well, you don't have to struggle with such boring things as
converting gcc asm to evc, there's pretty good arm-gcc-wince port at
http://mamaich.kasone.com . Prebuilt versions for cygwin are available
(for sure, you can build it for Linux too). Things ported with it
include DosBox, an x86 emulator, so while it's not rock solid yet,
it's pretty suitable for development.

Best regards,
 Paul                            mailto:pfalcon at users.sourceforge.net
