*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.
