Before posting here, i asked a question about binary emulation on
If i combine the answers i got there with a little openbsd-misc
archive-searching, i can say that OpenBSD's emulation capabilities are
at least problematic nowdays.
So, my answer to my initial question would be, most probably, no.
Regarding a "fresh start", as Marco van de Voort put it, i have found
some info in the wiki (namely

I do not fully understand this process. From the fpc man page:
-s Tells the compiler not to call the assembler and linker.
Instead, the compiler writes a script, PPAS.BAT under DOS, or ppas.sh
under Linux, which can then be executed to produce an executable.
There is not much info beyond that. So, a shell script is produced under
linux? That could be a potential problem since OpenBSD uses the korn
shell and linux uses the bash shell.
In any case, if anybody has a few pointers on how i could begin a fresh
start, please submit them.
