Little Smalltalk and Javascript for Minix

I've been working on porting some small programs to Minix to get familiar with what's required for ports. From there I hope to get some bigger stuff working that I really want to use like Factor and Erlang.

So far I have Little Smalltalk working (including the web based class browser and editor) and SpiderMonkey Javascript.

Porting is a little bit painful as there's quite a few things different under Minix. Eventually I want to try and develop some simple device drivers using these languages to see if the idea of user space device drivers in alternate languages is workable.
