Let me know if you have an update :-)
Well, I have good news and I have bad news. First the bad:
This thing is a nightmare to package. The whole build process is
designed for an individual to do a personal install. Not only does it
bundle a number of libraries, but it downloads two dependencies as
part of the build process, one of which is a binary package, so it's
arch specific. It's going to take quite a bit of work to make it
acceptable to distros that don't allow bundled libraries and unless
they make it a priority, I don't think it will happen anytime soon.
Additionally the main makefile doesn't even support an install target.
You have to go into a system specific folder (linux, windows, Solaris,
etc) and all it does then is copy in a few system specific files to
the build location and tar it up.
The good news is I made a very hackish SRPM which you can try out. It
installs into /opt/nightingale because it doesn't install anything to
the appropriate place. It also doesn't provide a desktop file so there
will be no menu entry in Gnome/KDE, etc. The SRPM is quite big because
the source is 43MB by itself and it downloads two other sizable files
as part of the build.
You're THE man. Attach the link to download the SRPM
