I wouldn't think it would be that hard to make it work on other systems; 
the hardest part (and biggest barrier) is likely to be getting a working
modula3 compiler.  That can range from annoying to impossible, depending
on your system; the modula3 compiler is generally an ugly (and large)
thing to build.  Then you need libz and libmd.

The threads are almost certainly Modula3 stuff; once you get the compiler
working, that shouldn't be a problem.
