Introducing a new host/guest means first changes into kBuild (which is 
maintained in a separate repository) needs to be done. As far as I know 
this is already mostly done but there is one last change that François 
submitted (a few lines patch, iirc) that hasn't been merged into kBuild yet.

Once kBuild can be checked out and works without any modifications on 
Haiku, integrating the rest of the patches will be easier and less time
