Well, most of it compiles. 

In the current setting, R 1.5.1 fails with exhausted memory on ppr.f; this
might be overcome by turning the default optimization (-O2) off (to -O0).
Most of the problems we had were, IIRC, with the c/c++ and fortran
interaction for some of the add-on packages. The main R core could work well
enough on the Zaurus, but it might need some tender love, care and tweaking.
