Once this is done I'm going to work on a FreeBSD port.

That's good to hear.  I may still set up an RPM-based box to do some
testing with, until I can get something that works on Debian/Ubuntu.

I've messed around with the software a little more today, and see that
I can potentially make this work by putting my own compiled versions
of various apps in the ThirdParty directory, or some such other rot. 
Their "source" version is not quite properly named.  :P

Any rough estimate as to when we might see your build script working
"in the wild"?
