Thank you!  I will add a README.Debian, it's a good
suggestion.  I have access to Debian amd64 and PowerPC
architectures.  If building for them is identical to
building for i386 then I can make those available as well.

This sounds like a good idea to me.  I can rebuild the
package for i386, with the README.Debian,  and make it
available later today.

Jeff and Andi, thanks for your time on this so far.  Your
help is appreciated!
