I did a preliminary port of it some time ago.. the arch specific things can 
in principle be copied from the other archs in a straightforward way. The 
problem was instead that strace depends on _everything_ in the libc, 
every damn include file there is is included etc, and we were using
only uClibc then, so you could not compile strace.

Now it should be fairly easy to port, given that the arch specific things 
are ported/copied from a similar arch (like i386).
