      Hmm, this is a bit tricky. The client/server builds fine using gcc on
      tru-64, but won't build cleanly under Linux. I've fixed a few bits, but
      have hit my C/C++ knowledge limit (OK, I admit, I'm a Perl programmer). If
      anyone has a patch for this, or has the inclination to take a look,
      please shout!

      Yup - you'll need to install gcc 2.95 in tandem with 3.2. This should
      be fine on Mandrake. I'd also be interested, however, in patching the code
      for gcc 3.2.

      I've just got access to a sun box, so I'll see if I can build a binary for
      you (no promises though).

      The upshot; I would be delighted to hear from anyone inclined to
      contribute to the SSAHA code base. Whilst it works great here at Sanger,
      I'm well aware of the problems experienced on other (non
      tru-64) platforms. One possibility is setting up a ssaha
      project on sourceforge. Interested parties; please step forward!
