Hi Jason,

Sure I can place some information there. This version should be 
cross-platform indeed, since the libraries used are all cross-platform 
(OpenCV, GLFW, FTGL, DevIL). However I am not familiar at all with 
configure scripts, and I have been working modifying manually the 
Makefile (it is currently working on Ubuntu), though trying to 
understand how to deal with configure scripts, so this must be sorted 
out still...
