NetSurf certainly can be built on RISC OS, but I'm not sure if there are any
active developers who actually do it on a regular basis. I build on Linux
using the GCCSDK cross compiler, as it's a lot faster and comes with better
support for source control and the like.

I've probably got some notes somewhere from the last time I tried building
NetSurf natively on RISC OS. I've an idea that the process may have changed
recently, however, so it might be best for me to hang fire on digging those
out until others more knowledgeable have had a chance to comment.
