suivi, as well as gabor are only available to ircam forum members ....
that is, you pay $$$ to get a cd with it. same as it was with jmax before it 
become open source. many (all except jmax itself?) jmax stuff was always only 
trough the ircam forum .... at least in my experience, there is no chance to 
get your fingers on any of that other than paying for it, whatever you do.

see here :

also this should give a hint of the direction it is heading :

put that together with the statements on  
that read:
"FTM is a shared library for Max/MSP ......" and
"FTM is the basis of [..] libraries, such as the suivi [..] and the object 
sets Gabor and MnM"

so, you have a supposedly open-source extension to a closed source $$$ 
application, whereas that extension should act as basis for just anoter $$$ 

you might get your fingers on it, but you will never be able to use it freely.
lawsuits about "ideas and methods" or whatever are common nowdays, so one can 
easy burn its fingers with that, in my opinion.... so it may be better to not 
have seen it (if one wants still to be able to develop open-source stuff...)

whatever, depends on you, whish you luck ;-)
