	Actually, I have an older release of Ubuntu (a fork of Debian),
	so either would do.  

	I changed my search terms on Gogle and found a bunch of likely
	programs.  One is written is a special notation and has to do
	with LOGO [??] programming.  The test MIDI "songs" are nice, 
	and would serve IFF very short :-)  ---They get more than a bit
	**annoying** after 20 sec :-|.

	Another possibility looks like it was written in Xlib (that I
	taught myself and worked with for a year before moving to Xaw).
	But it requires the olden Lesstif.

	I was expert at porting for 15, 15+ years, but need help with
	this.  "locate" doesn't find anything like the following
	includes of libs.   Anybody give me a pointer??

	(The ``phase'' binary does something musical.  --I took piano
	lessons when I was a kid, but that does (ABS) no good now.

	From the manual makefile::

# For Linux with LessTif
#INCS   = -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/X11R6/LessTif/Motif1.2/include
#LIBS   = -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/LessTif/Motif1.2/lib

all:    phase

phase:  phase.c
        gcc -O2 $(INCS) phase.c $(LIBS) -lXm -lXt -lX11 -o $@
	@echo Compilation successful.

	Thanks for any clues.  If nobody out can help, no problem.  
	Probably a dumb idea anyway.
