Yes. It gets much harder if one wants it to generate windows binaries (it
only supports ELF at the moment).


There is a patch that makes it into a Windows hosted cross-compiler for
the Texas Instruments VeloCiTI (caps?) DSP family. It turns some of the
files into C++ files (urgh) and is in many ways not particularly nice.
That cross-compiler generates ECOFF binaries which is sort of like the
same family of executable formats as Windows uses. It doesn't seem like
there is much code to be shared there, though :(
