*tl;dr* The online NESPackager is back, for all your ROM conversion needs:

Today, while noodling around on my lunch break writing Newton Glossary 
definitions, I stumbled across the existence of the /compact/ DCL that 
Eckhart Köppen forked from the original, like, four years ago: 

And I went "WTF!  My entire problem has been that the DCL was stuck with 
really old build tools and source that won't compile on modern systems 
without serious effort... /and someone already made that effort?!/"

Obviously, I'm a bit out of touch.

Aaaaaanyways, the compact DCL compiles into a nice shared library /like 
a pro/ on Linux.  And it supports everything that the NESPackager code 
requires (which is only the package and NSOF stuff, I believe).

So this evening, I compiled a brand-spanking-new NESPackager binary on 
my new Linux server, cleaned up the web page a tad, and now it's back up 
for anyone who wants to emulate a 30 year old console on a 20 year old 
handheld computer.  Seriously.
