trivial. i in-fact compiled, evas, ecore and edje (cross-compiled) yesterday,
using the skiff cross-compile suite you can download from handhelds.org. i
cross-compiled for ARM.
> - Are there any special compilation options which I should be aware of?
have u spotted the make_cross_compile_arm.sh scripts in cvs? :):):) heheheh

i use it for fb - i use a combo of evas, ecore to get events, fb handling,
keyboard and mouse. warning the mouse drivers in ecore_fb are very limited so it
may require you to add more support for a particular touchscreen device of yours
or pointer device, if you have one. you can also run it in x - but you will get
about a 20% speed hit as a result :(

i suggest cvs - its always up to date - though it changes often. if you have
problems and we fix it - the fixes will go right into cvs so its the fastest
place to get updates - we might do a snapshot release

you will need from cvs:
i have it running on my ipaq sitting right next to me. return opens the menu,
arrow keys to navigate. return selects a menu item/submenu. settings->wallpaper
is all that works right now. this is more of a demo...
