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
pretty ugly.

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.
