Nothing like that. Our C code is quite portable and very nice in
this respect. But porting HiPE makes sense only if you are willing
to develop the corresponding native code backend under lib/hipe and
for that you need development work, not porting.

Yes, probably you should. Once you have everything else in place, we
can help you make a backend for gumstix.
