I believe Richard's question wasn't aimed at just me, so I'm forwarding it here.

The thing we are all agreed on is that it is desirable to have
HiPE "on all platforms and architectures supported by Erlang".
I was willing to pay USD 160 for a licence to the Intel C compiler

amount towards getting HiPE going.  Could there be a HiPE foundation?
