OK, obviously my first time compiling out of cvs didn't go as well as
I'd thought. I wanted to try the experimental rawusb driver for a
Tascam usb interface (and got good results).

What's the right way to add something out of cvs to the Planet?  I
wanted to build an rpm of jack (as well as some other packages I'm
interested in) because I'd heard it would be easier to manage. But I
read a bunch online and couldn't find a clear simple tutorial on the
process of building an rpm out of cvs that I could follow.

At one point I tried removing the planet's older jack rpm with
--no-deps but afterwards synaptic reported that all the packages were
broken and wouldn't install other packages until the broken packages
were fixed.

In compiling out of cvs I simply followed the instructions here:
At what stage should I have used "--prefix=/usr"?
Should I "make uninstall" and then recompile it using that switch?
What happens to the older rpm I currently have installed?

Thanks for any help.
