by no means can you just copy the executable.  especially if it isn't an x86 processor in the PocketPC!

you'd need a 3d rendering library to replace openGL, such as mesa3d or openGL ES if available for your particular platform.  You'll need to completely build the application targeting the pocketpc platform you are trying to use.  The compiler needs to be the proper one for the CPU.

All libraries (like SDL) thus need to be compiled as part of the process.

This isn't a simple recompile in general, though there may be some progress these days.

PocketPC != windows OS.  drivers, CPU, GL/DX, are all different.  Not just a quick port here.
