Yeah, forgot to put that system in the UPS, and turned down the power
when leaving the office.

Sorry for that :-(

I think I need to re-work the whole rake recipes and compilation
procedures, to allow building theses dependencies with the rake files.

Maybe abuse of Ruby power and do my own DSL that generates the require
rake task for it? After all, done that several times for projects like
mongrel_service and it's dependencies.

The only ones that can turn into a nightmare are gettext and libiconv,
they need build two times since they depend each other... (what kind
of sadistic programmer designed that?)

I'm installing Vista at the office to see what is happening with it :-P
