I will I will:) I will be passive on that project and won't do more than setting up one
presentation page for now. I am hoping that someday it might attract some interest,
that's it.

Thanks Moe.

No prob:)
Well, everything that was added is not Linux specific, so the ports you did are enough.
It'll be endian related now, this is the last thing I have to fix.
For the pkg-config stuff, take a look at the file macros/glib.pl (it's short and neat)
and tell me if there's something that escapes you.
That said, I have removed the glib dependency, so in the tarball in arabeyes.org:/tmp,
there shouldn't be any glib.pl macro.
