As mlton is actually a compiler for SML and has never been built on
s390x to my knowledge, I need to set up an emulated environment (or get
access to a real environment) and do some cross compiling first to get
it bootstrapped. There is even a tiny bit of assembly that might be needed.
Also, do you happen to know if the s390x target supports ieee 754
floating point? That is one of the main issues I have had with getting
mlton working on ARM.
IBM System Z has IEEE 754 floating point support starting with the z9
and with the new z10 those are integrated into the processor cores
properly. So that shouldn't be an issue.
Hope that helps,
