You can't expect programmers to write detailed documentation for every
Foobar Linux out there. The only thing that can be reasonably expected
is generic installation instructions - "install these versions of these
libraries then run 'make install'". Making things work seamlessly with
Foobar Linux is the job of the packagers and distribution maintainers of
Foobar Linux, any distribution-specific info from the actual programmers
is just a bonus.

I don't know if there is one, but if there isn't, wouldn't it be up to
the CCRMA people to package it and not the Jokosher authors?
