Question Rogue future

I plan to use x86 LInux for the foreseeable future, but variety is a good thing. Which would be more interesting: A) Porting Rogue Class to an ARM processor, so that it can run on a Chromebook, or B) Porting Rogue Class to a BSD kernel, so that the code is more polished and general?

Of the two, I would expect BSD to be the larger challenge, because it has a completely different build system that is more formally defined.

Regarding Rogue Class BSD: SDL dropped support for wscons [1]. The wscons driver was hard-coded for the Sharp Zaurus keyboard, 16-bit color depth, and no mouse input [2]. A BSD port would require, among other things, new SDL drivers.
