According to http://tools.assembla.com/BePorts/wiki/BepFile wiki page, 
it should be possible to check $BEPORTS_PLATFORM variable to know which 
plateform the port is attempted for. 

And according to that other http://tools.assembla.com/BePorts/wiki/BepFile wiki 
page, the STATUS_HAIKU, STATUS_R5 and STATUS_BONE should allow to say a port is 
untested on all platforms but Haiku...

Sounds like a good porting platform. Worth a try, at least.
