What's the status of that? I see commits related to a few syscalls from
the end of March/April 1, and nothing newer.
The last news I heard, some of the work that would be needed was done,
but I did not get the impression that it was possible to build working
binaries, even static ones.
(If this is incorrect, I'd like to hear the current status.)

Some ports have been merged before all functionality worked 
(including the dynamic linker), but I don't recall seeing any ports
get merged before it was possible to produce a working executable.

Or are you referring to just the non-arch-specific changes?
