Any Renoise interest?

I have been trying to see if i can get linux renoise running on fbsd for 
a while to no avail on 7.x, but recently installed 8-0 snapshot 200905 
and just got a bit further, but wondering if anyone else interested or 
have some more insight.

The story so far :
The package comes with an installer script which i just edited the 
install destinations in it to try /usr/local/bin or under compat/linux 
(but seems it gives same results if run from the untarred folder in my 
home), and i installed audio/linux-alsa-lib.

On 7.x the app would fail complaining that i don't have an SSE2 cpu, 
even though i do, and had emailed the renoise support team asking for 
info on how renoise checks for this to  shed some light, but they just 
replied that renoise is not supported on fbsd. I assumed it needed to 
look for cpuinfo in linproc but was looking in /proc instead, but i just 
let it be.

on 8.0-current (and linux_base-fc4) it got past that SSE problem but 
failed with a "relaytool stub call yada yada regarding 
linfontconfig.x...."; but since starting this post i updated base-fc4 to 
base-f10 and it loaded fine, only complaining that alsa driver not 
available, so sound will be disabled.

under preferences there is an option to select either alsa or jack as 
sound output, but when selecting jack ( and jack running beforehand with 
qjackctl) it complains that is not available.

That's it for me for today, but wondering if this will need fbsd jack 
libs in the right place for renoise to find, or linux jack libs installed.

if anyone has it running already or gets somewhere, please can you fill 
me in.(cross-posted freebsd-multimedia && )

thanks and regards.

p.s. I used both renoise demo 2.0 and renoise demo 2.1 rc1 (latest on 
their site)
