[Spread-users] suitability for embedded systems

I'm currently writing my own light-weight DLM and my manager suggested 
that I should look at spread.

I need to lock a shared resource in a building with nodes on the same 
LAN - specifically I'm locking a radio frequency (truly a shared 
resource, in every sense of the word).

Network latency can be assumed to be very small.

Only one node is allowed to transmit / receive on the radio frequency at 
one time (those that are in some proximity to each other).

I've read the paper here:
and it seems to be quite appealing.

- I'm limited to <1MB of storage, will spread fit?
- does spread require libg++.so ? (I am only working with C)
- will the configure script be fixed for cross-compilation?
- to the best of your knowlege, would spread be suitable for the 
scenario I described above?
