have only found time for cursory reading so far.  the 'unix/*' readme + install
files, on the whole, are ok.  there's some .. rubbish, like the talk about
"*-dev" packages, which makes no sense when you get the source tarball from the
author(s).  (and on some OS' "*-dev" makes no sense at all)  anyway, will find
more time in the coming days (I hope) and post/send my $0.02.


regards, jr.
