Two questions:

1. Has anyone successfully built MidiShare with Gentoo Linux? I tried 
once and couldn't tell whether it was working or not. It's not something 
I need to have, so I haven't really spent much time with it.

2. What is the licensing status of MidiShare? Can it legally be packaged 
and distributed with Planet CCRMA, Debian, DeMuDi or Gentoo? The last 
time I looked, you were free to download it and use it, but not to 
distribute it. If it *can* be re-distributed, I can probably get it 
packaged for Gentoo. You Debian and Fedora folk are on your own, though :).
