Ahh, I see. Ok, presumably though, before a package can be build wit
emerge, we still need to get configure/make to run OK.

If you fancy lending a hand, perhaps we can figure out what's required
to get pga3 to be friends with Gentoo? If so, I think the first step is
probably to do a normal ./configure and make sure that it can find
anything it needs.

How does it normally get set? Does emerge look for some sort of settings
file in the distribution?

Adam; do you have any experience with Gentoo?
