I've ported to two platforms under Linux by just creating the
'.ldi' and '.h'files manually.  I'm curious: what do you mean
when you say there's no way to edit the '.mlt' files under
Linux?  Obviously, editing the files is no problem, they're
just text files.  Is the conversion from '.mlt' to '.ldi' files
the part that's missing under Linux?

I guess I'll give up on my plans to release platform support
for the Samsung eval board.
