Even more progress (see attached).

Now comes the part where I may need some help.

1) Pagebar and buttons do nothing. They also cause the activity light to flash until the program is closed.
2) No option to close the program. I guess FBReader relies on the window manager to do it, but since we don't have a close button I don't know how to add this.
3) FBReader doesn't have the option that I can see to run from a dynamic location. The way I was able to get the icons and settings working, was because I made a symbolic link from /usr/local to /mnt/usb/fbreader. While this works for me, it's not practical for the average user.
4) I messed up my toolchain while testing. I'm using scratchbox. If anyone (*cough*Antartica*cough* ) has an up to date (2.9.1) toolchain, it would be great.

I may talk to FBReader developers to see if they can help. I'm sure they'd love to get a complete port to the iLiad.
