I'm packaging the 2.0 Git repository. Currently I have a package which
builds the C, C++, and Common Lisp libraries. The CL library loads. I
haven't tried to actually use it though.

Can you send me a tar ball containing your debian directory? I could
merge your stuff with my stuff.

I suggest that both the v1.x and 2.x trees get a debian directory.
Anyone who wants to build the package can do so, without any
guarantees. If someone comes along who wants to maintain the package,
then all he has to do is fix whatever is left to fix and upload it.
Martin, what do you think, would it be possible to add a debian

For the Common Lisp stuff there are at least one, maybe two extra
libraries required as dependencies.

That worked. Thanks for the suggestion Martin!

I'm using Debian Lenny.

BTW, in the documentation I read something about zmq, a kind of name
server. Is it still present in 2.0? It doesn't seem to appear in my
package. Nor does the chat example seem to install anything. I haven't
looked into it though, might be my mistake.

And what are PGM and PGM2 support? Why would I want to add those?
