I just compiled it with ./configure && make &&make install.  Will see
if there comes any bug reports about non-mmx.  But in principle there
should be a no-mmx variant.  Easy to make though (untested) with

Well, I'll not put as muck effort in as changing to shred library
etc.  I just made it because ogle needs it.

Didn't know about leagal stuff and the soud.  Sigh.  Well, it was not
mentioned on the cannot-package page, and I had no idea.  But I guess
troup et al knows more and that'll keep it in incoming.  I guess I
should post to d-leagal about this...

Anyway, when you are in the NM queue, it's quite OK to make a formal
ITP if you wish.  And hopfully find a sponsor.  If you are interested
in these packages (and they don't get rejected), you can have the
packages later.  I just wanted the to get available ASAP.
