Issue description
I know there is already a Linux port, but I'm not sure this can compile for ARM processors currently. Can you add support (if necessary) to compile on a Raspberry Pi?

Ideally I'd also like to see libretro/retroarch support so that you can call this from a RetroPie launcher and have the controller automatically mapped properly.

there are indeed problems with the current ARM support since that has not been a focus so far. We do want to get it working at some point, but our focus right now on polishing up the next release.

Besides ARM support, proper RPi support would also need an OpenGL ES backend (currently we only support Desktop OpenGL) as well as general performance improvements. You could look at the OpenPandora port to see if it already works on a RPi.
