Well, if we don't care about GNU extensions, then I'll ask again, what's wrong
with Wine?  I'm not saying it wouldn't be nice to have a Linux port of htod, but
if Wine provides an easy workaround, I think it should be a very low priority.

Some users may object to installing Wine just to run one program, 
especially one that should have a Linux port anyway.

But having some clue of what would need changing in the source code 
before it can be built to run natively under Linux might help to put it 
in better perspective.

Maybe it's to late for you, but I've discovered a small ruby-script 
(GPL'ed) in the dotmars-project, which use the gcc-xml tool. So it 
should also work on linux. But like htod, only c-code is supported.

Just as to the point, why is htod closed source?
