AFAIK preenv is only for use with SDL programs (which are typically
self-contained games that don't rely on OS widgets etc). And even then
it is limited to programs that use libraries and functionality already
present on the N900.

I think most of the free/open-source SDL stuff on Pre is probably
available on N900 in native versions already, such as ScummVM.

There is a wiki page tracking which games work. There's about a dozen
