 	Hagen ,  is the source code at (*) primarily Solaris only ?
 	Reason I asked is doing a straight "./configure && make 2>&1 | tee 
logfile" is producing pretty much nothing but errors .  If the tarball is 
patched to be functional on Solaris it may need a bit of tweeking for other OS's 
and their libraries ,  Just a Fyi .  Log of the failed build is available if 
wanted .

(*)	linux based system ,  gcc 3.4.6 .

 	Joao ,  As described by Hagen here (**) ,  I beleive his new IRReval 
tool (w|c)ould make a decent inclusion to the tool set .  Mind as long as its 
sources are made portable to other OS's build environments .
