Like I said, it depends on your definition of embedded, I guess. I work with set-top boxes,
which most people tend to regard as embedded. I suppose you could start to define it by the
amount of RAM and CPU power available. :-)

I'd notice putting Perl on it, but that's because I'd have to build it first. Python doesn't
seem to like cross-compiling for mipsel; no idea if Perl is better.

(For what it's worth, the dev system here has both 256Mb and an attached hard disk I could use
for swap if needed. Production boards can be differently configured, though.)

Oh - I wasn't actually commenting on the Perl dependency for the kernel build, btw, just the
view of embedded systems.
