CVS or native-OS package management are the only options for the auto- 
build farm.  FTGL and FreeType should just be checked into CVS, i.e.  
GemLibs, if they are not included in Fink/Debian/Fedora Core

No one's gotten that stuff working with the Pd-extended build system.  
The flext build stuff is strange and it seems Gem is making progress  
with the ./configure stuff.  Really, its just a matter of someone  
doing the work.  If either build system uses the GNU standard  
'DESTDIR' and 'prefix' variables correctly, then the install targets  
should be easy.  Otherwise those will have to be implemented.

The manually assembled test versions have Gem and flext binaries in  


I am no longer doing manual test versions.

This is all up the gem devs.  The framework is in place, Gem just  
needs to be plugged in.
