Thanks, noted. I'm very much a beginner at Open Source development, and I don't
have SVN experience- that leaves me with a heck of a lot of work before I find
my feet and I must stress that time is already a problem here.

Not sure yet. I've got Debian with 2.4 on one machine, and either 2.2 or Solaris
v8 on another- in the latter case I think I have limited ability to update
libraries since it took a lot of work getting the architecture running and I
really don't want to break anything.
