Minix 3 might also be a viable option; it should run a whole lot better in the 
very limited RAM, and it's much more limited process model should be able to 
cope with a non-MMU-based system.

For what I want to do with it, though, I'm rather more interested in writing a 
single binary that runs on the bare metal... Jasmine, you've dealt with OMAP 
boards. Can you get an off-the-shelf (free) gcc cross-compilation system that 
deals with all the irritating libc details? If so, any pointers?
