well i am contacting the author to do the linux port.
The linux port isn't a problem, the problem is that PTL doesn't use
autoconf, automake, it use only make file with config files which are
PTL presents several advantages over omnithread that comes with omniorb.
Now i am waiting for an answer from the author.
if he doesn't want to use autoconf, i will fork PTL and maintain an
autoconf version myself. i found this wrapper useful for one of my project
but i will never use a bloated makefile configuration like PTL's.
