Yeah, that's obvious. I'm sure anybody who was capable would help. All I
can offer at this point is development systems but that doesn't seem to be
the problem. How much platform dependent code is there? I would think if
the main product works on i386 or AMD64 for example then there isn't much
to do except build on the other targets? 

Is it a matter of not having developers for the specific platform or not
having anybody to build it for a specific platform?
