Yeah, I got the sources but it won't compile without a binary already in
place. I do not know how I should proceede and SML-NJ is a very big system
compared to Moscow ML. I wanted to start with a small and easy package - I
will start working on SML-NJ soon. We use it at university, too :)

A look into the configure-Script (no autoconf, too bad) shows up that it will
deny to build on a real 64-bit-architecture - everything else should work
thought. But I would like to be able to do some tests before releasing a
non-i386-binary. Would it be possible to get an account on some
m68k/alpha/...-machines?

I consider buying an M68K (driven by nostalgy, and I still have a bunch of
programs for Atari-compatible m68k) but I do not have the money yet. After all
I am only a poor student...
