Besides that, it's not so hard to get the rpm working on Ubuntu. I just 
had to
install libtiff, link to, use alien to convert 
to a deb,
install that and then change the startup script to cd to
/usr/share/tesserecttrainer/system before running the binary.

If no-one is up to the job of making a package for a shareware author,
those instructions can at least be put on his website. I don't know enough
yet to make a proper package with dependencies.

Andy: if you are not running Ubuntu, should I tidy up these instructions
for use on your website? (Though I haven't checked the other deps so
there may be libraries on my system that have not been taken into account)
