Yes l-)

FYI, I'm currently working on an ELF build of svgalib and the
(non-free) gopher packages.  The former I hope to get some work done
on this weekend (but then I hoped to get some done last weekend
too...)  Svgalib is (one of) the last remaining shared library
packages which has to be converted to ELF.

The gopher packages will take a little longer, since I'm upgrading
them to the latest version of the gopher software, and also because
svgalib is more important l-)
