Sounds good to me, Frank.  Tell us more about your ideas, I'm sure it's more thought out than mine :)  Once I know more, then I'll update the packages I started.  If I'm tracking you correctly is just means dropping the .../dev/... that I've been using so it installs into ../fgs-pkgs/<product name>/ instead.

We plan to use GTK with the Lifeline/Xaya application that Mishtu, I and others are building.  However, we are also hoping to tie it into OpenEV.  So I'm not sure what we'll want to do, but it would be nice to compartmentalize these dependencies IMO.

Thanks, I'd like to see it.
