I made an ipk-package for Sarien (and will do the same for FreeSCI as
soon as I manage to fix a few Nanonote specific problems). Or did you
mean if it's ported to the openwrt build system and available in the
main openwrt source repository? Then the answer is no, and I'm not
prepared to do that extra work either. But I could send my patches to
someone else who is, if that's the way it needs to be done.

The thing is that while these two pieces of software are very well
suited for the Nanonote (use low resolution, depend on a keyboard,
works without a mouse), and my patches and compiled binaries are pretty
much Nanonote specific. On most other openwrt xburst targets (I don't
even know which devices that might be) they may not even make sense.
