Hehe :-)

So far, I've built:

kpilot	  -- KDE hotsync tool
pilrc     -- Pilot resource compiler plus GUI
prc-tools -- cross-compilation environment
imgvtopgm -- Converter to make graphics suitable for ImageViewer or
             Spec (freeware clone).  Nice to viewing maps on the
             Pilot; four shades of gray.

I hope to have the following in a few days:

makedoc7  -- Converts text files to PRC DOC format for viewing on
             the Pilot (on hold waiting for reply from author on
             license)
pilot-manager -- Perl/TK hotsync tool (waiting for me to download and
		 try it out)

Others have already packaged pilot-link and pui, so we will shortly
have a full suite of Pilot tools available.
