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.
