Thanks Dave!

Nick sent over a new build script and Makefile which made it work too. 
The rhodes works pretty stable here.. currently playing with it as midi
synth in MusE + hydrogen for drums and i already love it. 
Only little harm I see so far is that it's very silent, compared to
hydrogen's drums with default volume, but that's not a big problem.
And at least the rhodes didn't crash in the last half an hour since i
use it.

Will test the other synths too, especially the B3 and Pro52 and
report about problems if they occur.

Btw a gentoo ebuild for the new version including jack support can be
found in Frieder's overlay recently mentioned here on the list.
