I'm working on one, but I haven't got very far yet.  I can cross-build the  
system, and I've figured out what to do about floating-point.  Right now I'm 
working on boot-up; after that I'll be working on virtual memory support.

Suggestions, wisdom, or help would be greatly appreciated.  A few other
people interested in this port monitor tech-embed.
