[PlanetCCRMA] redhat 8.0

So far nobody has asked (well, I got one inquiry off the list :-)

Planet CCRMA does not work "as is" on 8.0. I have installed 8.0 in a spare 
disk and I'm starting to work on it. Apt needs to be recompiled, if you 
are really curious you can grab a precompiled version for 8.0 from 
freshrpms.net. After installing that and configuring sources.list for 7.3 
I managed to get the Planet CCRMA kernel and sound drivers installed and 
running, which is a good start. 

After recompiling snd-guile (because of a weird dependency problem),
snd-motif and snd-utils install and seem to work. Both the cmucl and clisp
versions of the lisp world seem to work as well. Pd is fine. Muse fails to
start but that is not surprising (different c++ compiler and libraries).
Remember, I'm just trying the 7.3 packages. Hopefully no big roadblocks
ahead... we'll see what happens when I try to rebuild the tricky packages.
