Not sure what that means to you.

It's pretty small.  As mentioned in the README, an "embedded build"
binary for SSE is under 100 kB.  The embedded build is not technically
a feature at this time, but it's not too difficult to mod the Makefiles
to produce the result.

Of course, you could just use Orc to produce assembly source code for
architectures you might not be able to support by manually writing
