It needs a minor patch to disable assembler optimized versions of a couple 
of functions, and truly horrendous configure opts, but other than that 
compiles fine.


Those are the two functions that the ancient Apple gcc + latest gas-
preprocessor fall over on.

--enable-static --disable-shared --enable-pic --
--extra-ldflags="-arch armv7 -isysroot 
/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneOS5.0.sdk -
miphoneos-version-min=4.0" --enable-cross-compile --arch=arm --target-
os=darwin --
cc="/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/usr/bin/gcc" --
cpu=cortex-a8 --extra-cflags="-arch armv7 -mfpu=neon -miphoneos-version-
min=4.0" --disable-debug --enable-small
