Thanks for the response.  I discovered the project from Columbia a few 
days after I posted on this list, and downloaded the code and tried to 
compile it.  I didn't build and I emailed the developers at Cali 
University, who still haven't responded.  I am, however, very glad to 
see that Ircam has decided to move forward on this.  OM is an excellent 
piece of software, and I'm looking forward to seeing  it running on Linux!
