I know nothing about openwrt, these answers are general ones.

Same as you would set for cross-compilation of normal Python.  Given
an order of magnitude more people use normal Python, chances are that
there are many many more who may know, rather than the several hundred
(at most) on this mailing list.

Same as normal Python.  Note that the one core Stackless-specific
requirement, is that Stackless has assembly language at it's core.
For cross-compilation to another platform to work, if the suitable
existing assembly language routine does not exist, it will need to be
written.  Now, greenlet is a spinoff of Stackless Python and it
includes the same and similar assembly language routines, so if
someone has gotten that working on openwrt and Stackless does not
already have a suitable routine for whatever openwrt runs on, then you
may be able to obtain a routine from there.

If it is not on the list, it is unlikely anyone here knows.  You would
be best mailing that person directly.. and then posting to the list to
let us know :-)
