Xilinx ISE Webpack 8.2

I have the Linux Xilinx ISE Webpack 8.2
(http://direct.xilinx.com/direct/webpack/82/WebPACK_82i_SFD.sh - you need a
login but they are free). I did have it working with linux_base-fc4 mostly
"out of the box" but for fc6 I needed some extra files, ie
fetch -r ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/archive.download.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/7.3/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/glibc-devel-2.2.5-34.i386.rpm
rpm2cpio ~/glibc-devel-2.2.5-34.i386.rpm | sudo tar -zxvf - ./usr/lib/crt\?.o
(This is needed to run a simulation)
For both I need to do the following otherwise it won't run..
sudo ln -s /compat/linux/usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1
Also to run a simulation on both you need to do this..
sudo ln -s libc.so.6 libc.so
sudo ln -s libm.so.5 libm.so
sudo ln -s ../../lib/libdl.so.2 libdl.so
(otherwise FreeBSD versions of these files get used and you end up with a
chimeric executable that doesn't work)
When I switched to the later Linux kernel emulation (2.6.16) I found that
the simulation executable would not exit properly - one of its processes
would die but the other 3 would stick around until you killed them manually.
If you use 2.4 emulation this doesn't happen.
I also tried the latest ISE (10) but I can't even run the installer, it
exits silently unless you manually set the XILINX env var and when you do
that it starts up but lists nothing to install :)
I was thinking it would be nice to add something to the handbook in case
people wanted to run ISE on FreeBSD, and it would be nice if the latest
version worked but I have no idea how to debug it :(
PS please CC me as I am not on the list.
