Thanks, this worked (I was trying ./MAKEDEV dsp :-).

Seems so.  The latest Debian kernel is 2.2.10.

# cat > /dev/dsp
bash: /dev/dsp: No such device

I'll just wait for the next Debian kernel- or maybe someday a 2.3/2.4 which
builds out-of-box. :-)

With a bit of effort, I've got all of the glib/gtk+, imlib, orbit and gnome-libs
packages built.  The simple little gnome-hello tests work, so I think I'm doing
something right. :-)  I'll make them available when everything's ready.

Thanks again,
