Actually this is all getting kind of silly. The reason that ChucK is
hard to compile is that unlike almost all other pieces of software on
Linux, it doesn't use autoconf (or similar) to provide a configure
script that first checks for dependencies. I'd be willing to set that
up for ChucK, but only if I was sure that it'd go into the official
version. Otherwise it's not worth wasting the time.
