There is already an SDL version of Executor, however there is much more
to Executor than the graphics and sound code. So, to answer your question,
it's not being worked on, but we're tossing the idea around.
I'm going to CC this to Cliff who may be able to comment directly.

It doesn't build. There are linking issues using the GNU ld with C++ objects
However, code built with gcc can link with SDL built with the Metrowerks
compiler, so large C projects using the SDL API _will_ work under BeOS. :)
I tested this with the aliens example program and DOOM, though DOOM built
with gcc has a major bug which I believe is compiler-related.
