I don't know much about the old port.  
If I remember right it was Pre Ghost and used GLUT.

I do have a couple of pointers though.
If you haven't you should first get a successful build on windows/linux
or some other platform working.  Cross compiling is tricky and doing this
will give you a feel for how things should work.

For OpenGL for PocketPC I would check out opengles:

http://www.cs.umn.edu/~mein/blender/paper.txt is sort of a 
"roadmap" for a new developer and it might be of some use for you.

I haven't had the time to dump it on the blender3d site yet but
will do so in the near future.(as soon as I get caught up at work again.)
