Using vpackager, I was able to create an aMule package (aMule-2.2.6-i586-1vl70.txz). The most recent aMule is 2.3.1 rather than 2.2.6, which is the previous release. However, for 2.3.1, it required wxWidgets 2.8.12, but VL-70, which I'm using, only has 2.8.11, so I had to go for the previous version of aMule.
To create the package with vpackager for VL-7.0 stable, install the following from Gslapt:
cryptopp 5.6.0-i586-1vl70 (satisfies requirement for libcrypto++)
Then download aMule-2.2.6.tar.bz2
, and run vpackager on the file. It will create aMule-2.2.6-i586-1vl70.txz in the tmp directory (specifically /tmp/vpackager/aMule/2.2.6). Install this by right-clicking on it in the file-manager (Thunar).
