I did that and it seems to work fine. It does require patching the
makefiles as well to include -fno-strict-aliasing to bypass an
optimization problem (feature?) of the newer gcc (see another message in
this thread).

Hmmm, I managed to get a hybrid version of the audicle going. It _seems_
to work but I'm not yet a chucker so I can't really test. 

I added chuck (with a couple of patches), then some more patches
to deal with const char ** issues (argv related) in the audicle codebase
and voila, compiled fine and started. As before no _real_ testing.

Thanks... So there are now chuck/miniaudicle/audicle versions on fc11
that appear (maybe) to work.
