I'm a bit concerned that it may require things RTEMS does not have. Does it
mmap in ways we don't support? I doubt it forks new processes but that has
to be answered. Some basic research plus an attempt to compile it for RTEMS
with problem sections disabled is a good first step of any porting
FWIW I looked at porting the PDF viewer from chromium to RTEMS. Their build
system seemed quite complex.
