And I have another TODO item to address the problem with select-on-bytes-per-word using the host implementation to decide what size the target is.
We have several issues with cross compilation.

Seems to me the right thing to do is:

1. Invent FASL_ARCH_SVM1.
2. Teach the cross-compiler to spit it out.

After all, as I understand it, the fasl architecture is relevant only
for compiled code.  Maybe there'll be a byte ordering issue too but
that can probably be smoothed out in fasl.c for SVM1.

The cross-fasdump branch is an attempt to do something like (2); maybe
it can be revived.
