I guess it comes down to what you meant by "like this". I re-read the
thread and it seems that Russell is trying to do a very similar thing
to what I used to do in GNU Zile, so I'm not sure what about it makes
cross-compilation fail, except some small details that he could fix.

Mostly lack of motivation: this is not a feature I use at the moment.
I will do the cleanup required to get the code into autoconf-archive,
and someone with more motivation will hopefully "promote" it later.

When I have finished rewriting GNU Zile in Lua, I suspect I will want
to help with this.
