Yes as Tom mentioned - we're working together (as part of SUMOVER
project) to get one consolidated version of the tools so that things

running gentoo (x86) here as well so the tools certainly compile on it
- we will work to get things included in the official ebuilds.
I'll be talking about that at the AG retreat next week.
