yes, this is precisely why i moved to gentoo. i was running into too many  
things i had to compile, and dependencies i had to meet manually anyway  
under FC. gentoo has a VERY comprehensive set of apps available as  
ebuilds, and is continually upgraded, rather than jumping up in discrete  
leaps (i.e. FC1 > FC2 > FC3).

unfortunately, there ARE a few key audio apps missing in the portage tree  
-- i.e. rtmix and csound. however, i've found more of what i need there  
than in the Planet. portage is certainly a comprehensive package  
management system.
