I'd say any arch on which it and the LinuxTV drivers are at least buildable.
I'm fairly sure that it'd make sense to build it on at least ARM, although I
can't afford an Iyonix on which to try it ;-)

BTW, I have 1.3.11 packaged and available from the URL below (and soon to be
replaced by 1.3.12). You may find that some things in my .diff.gz are of use;
comments welcome.
