It's great news. I wonder if there is a way to compile xffm from svn? I 
mean I tried svn trunk and see that all the packages are separate. I 
installed libtubo without a problem, but next thing is required is 
libxffm, which gives me a error:

> No rule to make target `', needed by `all-am'

I wonder if the svn source code is already obsolete?
