Well, first do you just want binaries that work on your platform, or so
you want to know how to build it yourself? Obviously, I would prefer the
latter, because that way someone would have to look at my documentation
and procedures, which could probably do with improvement. I think this is
also preferable from your perspective for a package that isn't officially
part of Debian.
If you did want the former, I could just dump some binary debs somewhere,
but that won't help you if I disappear off the net tomorrow.
Do you have a group of people who are interested in using this? If so, can
you give me a little more detail about them?
As a first step, clone the following Mercurial repositories.
Start by seeing if you can build and install the ccl-ffigen package. That
is the easiest. If you have problems with it, let me know. And what
platform/arch will you be building on?
