          Absolutely, I've not yet ported the 1.1 compiler to BeOS, I'm
even surprised you can actually compile the compiler for the BeOS target!!
There are several reasons why i did not do this yet:

- the compiler is not stable yet. (There are still big changes, which might
    affect several targets)
- the posix rtl is being redesigned (this is the base for porting BeOS),
  as long this is not complete, its not very useful to create a fake RTL
just for BeOS.

As soon as these two things are done I'll try to port BeOS to 1.1 (this
might take at least 6 months still though!)...
