Would YOU be interested in building/submitting the package? Since you have experience with the system, it would be nice if it was packaged by someone who is familiar with it.
I'd be glad to, except for a few factors:
1. I'm *not* a programmer type. If things don't work with ./configure, make, make install, i'm pretty much lost.
2. I expect the Vector packaging requires/recommends certain conventions be followed for configuring/compiling such as config options, install directories, etc. It may be all documented someplace, but I'm sure I'd need some hand-holding by someone familar with what all the conventions are.
3. The machines here are all running a customized kerel for K6-2 processors, so I'm not sure something compiled from source would run properly on generic pentiums. Likewise, I've tried to strip out as much of kde/gnome bloat as I can and limit things strictly to XFCE because of machine speed, disk space, and memory. I would expect the desired packaging would be from a more generic pentium/stock VL install to be sure it would run properly everywhere.
If there's someone to help me learn the procedures, and if the system limitations above aren't a factor, then I'd be glad to try to contribute to packaging little things I find useful.
