Barry, I just uploaded Moo (my build system) and the first Calf GNU/Linux alpha.
I noticed you were (well, maybe) interested in Moo, it's my latest post in http://www.iguleder.info.
It's still incomplete, but it works and I'm on it now. Very fast and seems to work well, but something about the combination of GCC and glibc is broken and many apps that use libglade segfault, as in Puppy and pretty much any distro ... that's galculator and Osmo.
