I've been working very hard over the years to make certain that tulip.c
supports the most cards possible.  And it does take much more time than most
people realize -- I've spent of my time over the past week
working on releasing v0.91, and I still have about a dozen cards to test
before I release it.

You can do the port, but it would be a violation of the license to
distribute the result.  I am not willing release the Tulip driver under a
BSD-style license.
