I already tested the installation on Raspberry PI a while ago and it
worked without problems.

We already have some binaries for ARM, two sets in TeX Live
(http://tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/bin/) and one set in our
minimals (http://svn.contextgarden.net/suite-bin/tex/armel-linux/)

The problem is that I don't know how to distinguish between the two
(or more) flavours or arm with a simple script. There is Little Endian
and Big Endian. And there is "Hard Float" or something like that.

Are you able to tell:
- Which of the two sets from TL works for you? (Or whether the
binaries on the garden work for you.)
- How to distinguish between different flavours?

If you can help me solve that mystery, enabling support for your
platform is just "two clicks away".
