No. That program is 70% assembler (and quite large) so a port to ARM
would be truly epic. 

There are apparently other SNES emulators which are already built for
ARM (e.g. fceu and mednafen). I have no idea how these compare.

No. It would need a huge amount of work to make it run.

PLease send questions like this to the mailing list, not to
individuals - you are more likely to get an answer, and others will
benefit from that answer. 

> PD: Sorry for my bad english!

It was perfectly understandable.

Principal hats:  Linaro, Emdebian, Wookware, Balloonboard, ARM
