Thanks a lot!

Hm, kind of interesting project ;) well sure, might be another source to
look at when hitting some weird issues. But using "portage" IMHO
wouldn't make much sense, we already have our ports system ;)

Well, I guess it'll take me a few days to stabilize stuff and a few
*more* days to create some helpful USING for it ... but then, I'll try
to build some additional libs and find some proof of concept of some
Linux binary (closed-source?) working on it. That's the rough plan ... I
have some hopes ;)

Cheers, Felix
