I would expect that's an over-estimate by a significant amount, There is a lot of copy/paste between ports and a lot of generated code. The inline assembler in particular must throw things off a lot, since writing that much assembler from scratch would be a lot more work than what we do. OTOH, the original reverse engineering and the original dryos effort took a lot more work per line a of code than most regular development.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I don't disagree although if somebody were to propose a project like this at work, covering as many cameras and functions as CHDK does,  I might throw out a $5M budget over three years as a first estimate.
