It won't work under ARM. Oberon V4 works only on x86. You can view
source of file in question here:


I tried to compile it on x86, where it did segfault (older binaries are still
working). I didn't bother to debug it, since it is old code: pointer arithmetic,
using strcpy/strcat, storing pointer addresses as int and so on.
