It is coming. Maybe I have it all up and running in a week or two. I am 
cross-compiling on a faster machine, through nfs and chroot, otherwise it 
would take ages to compile native. I am not sure everything will work like 
that, but it ought to. When plain archlinux is working, it is time to decide 
if something special for the C3 is needed? It is a low-end processor, after 
all, and some things you just don't want to run on it. I will probably 
exclude a lot from "extra" unless I get a good reason not to do it.
