Bug#332861: ITP: ezm3 -- An Easier Modula-3 Distribution

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Piotr Roszatycki <dexter@debian.org>

* Package name    : ezm3
  Version         : 1.2
* URL             : http://www.polstra.com/projects/freeware/ezm3/
* License         : Digital License Agreement (should be DFSG)
  Description     : An Easier Modula-3 Distribution

Ezm3 is a simpler, more portable distribution of the Modula-3 compiler and
runtime libraries. Ezm3 is derived from the robust and comprehensive PM3
release of Modula-3. Only the components and features which are needed by CVSup
were retained.

The supported CPU for Linux is i386 only but there are unofficial patches
for hppa, sparc and powerpc support (http://dev.gentoo.org/~vapier/ezm3/).

The packaging is very tricky because it is not possible to separate the build
from the installation, and the installed files will not work if they are moved
to a different location. The only way is to use fakechroot and build the
packages in fake chroot environment.
