m'okay, one more thought. All the apps you cite are very "end user"
They require either a complicated set of supporting libraries / front-end graphics / launchers to "Do Stuff" - or so it would seem...
Look under the surface, understand what some of the apps in the "I did this in 30 mins with buildroot" list... I provided above do first. and how.
i.e. the "Not End User" stuff.
In this way you will gain an understanding of the GUTS of the processes.
strace some stuff. run stuff from the command line. dig deeper.
All the "I click one button and awesome stuff happens" apps are at the END of the convert from 3 to 5 list, not the front, for obvious reasons.
(I have outlined before, I think, in this thread)
"PDF reflowing a non PDF reflow document" wouldn't be a great place to start. (IMHO)
I would suggest a) grab a 3 app b) look at the port (if you can find one) c) note what has changed. for yourself.
once you can speak authoritatively about WHAT, you think a specific
problem might be for porting a certain app people will likely help
Saying "Why doesn't this work" without seemingly any personal research is not (very often) likely to get helpful responses.
Hope that was nice and friendly, it was meant to be.
