1.4 does even run on system without MMU like the ColdFire.  Use
"./autogen.sh --build-uclinux" to run the configure for such a system.
That port is some years old, so you might want to add the new
--enable-minimal to the list of configure options.

2.0 will be much harder because it takes up more space and requires
preemptive multitasking.  I have not looked at how to get 2.0 smaller.
