First step I usually take is to replace the config.guess and
config.sub that comes with a source package with the ones from
cp /boot/home/config/share/libtool/config.guess .
cp /boot/home/config/share/libtool/config.sub .
Then I try to compile.
Read through the porting tips section if you run into any troubles.
And yeah, what Urias said about GCC, move back to the one posted on
the Haiku site so your binaries wil be compatible.
Nano has a place on the portlog list, but hadn't been tried yet, well
not that anyone had logged at least.  Seems to me I gave it a quick
try out a few months ago, but it didn't want to go easy.
