I wasn't meaning you should do it. Could we perhaps see the existing
Univa configuration to build on, say, RedHat 5, though? That might help
getting the bits working more generally that we've failed on so far, and
I should probably write some notes unless anyone else is in a better
position. An example of setting up the testsuite might be useful too; I
only got part way through figuring that out.

I assume so, but I don't really know. The changes I've made are public,
anyhow (apart from very preliminary autotools stuff).

Yes, I think.
