The Lilv API is very similar.

lv2-c++-tools is completely unrelated and not a dependency of these
projects, you should remove that.  All of these projects are purely C.

The extension stuff is only required for lv2jack (a simple host that
comes with Lilv), for the record.

And... huh... I didn't know there was an event tarball with that broken
header in it.  Whoops.  I'll get on making new release tarballs of those
extensions.  (Note you could just install the LV2 SVN repository as well
and avoid all the kludging).

The Python bindings aren't really stable right now, and those scripts
won't work unless you configure lilv with --bindings.
