   I did get mftrace to compile without errors and installed the 
package, but still no lilypond.  Also got rosegarden to compile, 
installed, and I think run ok.  Rosegarden is looking for Jack-Audio and 
Lilypond in the opening dialog screens, however.  Rose is probably good 
enough to play around with for now, but would like to get the runtime 
stuff compiled.
Thanks for you rapid reply, but was waiting to respond till after 
rosegarden compiled.  Running an old K6-III+ 450hz here so things take 
time here.
