Yes, I have HAL in my back pocket and dbus is not quite there yet.
Matt said he had instructions ready to go, or, if you do as well,
a hint would be greatly appreciated. That would make the work of
getting it into BLFS much easier.

Right now, we're still playing catch up getting packages updated
after releasing 6.0. Bruce is working on KDE, I'm working on GNOME
and I've done a bunch of the server and large package updates.

We still need to update some of the multimedia packages, also.
I've got gaim and Xchat to do yet, but those should be easy as
I've already got most of those done in a Post-6.0 sandbox.
