After finally reading this thread, we had a friend compile
ltp-intermediate-20100119 on SUSE 11.2. We have a strong interest in
getting the linuxulator updated so we can get the Xilinx gate array
compiler up and running on Dragonfly.
I could upload the built binary of ltp as a tar file to leaf if anybody
wants me to.
