I have asked it before, but I think it got buried in the main Altirra thread. Well, at least I got no reactions, partly because I did not explain why this would be a nice feature.
The idea is to compile the Altirra source code against winelib, instead of running it with wine. On x86/amd64, this does not gain you much, except for maybe a slight decrease in startup time. But if one can get it to compile this way, you can also target another CPU, for example ARM/ARM64. This would allow us (hopefully) to run it on Android and perhaps even a (jail-broken) iPhone.
I understand this might be a pretty huge undertaking. I wish it was just running winemaker and make, but it's not that simple.
Has anyone ever looked into this?
And @phaeron, would you be willing to help people with this? Perhaps some guidance related to the source tree. A lot of those Japanese names mean nothing to me. Or maybe there's already a (short) description of the source tree, what's where and what's it for, et cetera...
