"Autoconfiscated" version built in RH73. Trying Upi's version fails,
missing OpenAL, and no RPM for it. So I guess making one would be
required (investigating that now) or telling people to get the tarball
or making it easy to disable, whichever other system is used to build
Blender. That is the ob-listtopic. :]

The info appeared in
and IRC, so the genie is out of the box.

Some people that have been building know zero about the list, and
probably others that do not build, know. Getting things moving on
should not collide with people reading, I think it is even nice that
people see things move, so they can stop saying all is chaos and
madness. If stupid talk appears, there is private mail (not setting
the reply-to sometimes helps, you have to think about where are you
sending), and after first public notification to stop doing severe
nonsenses, kick out of list. Works with other devel lists I know.

PS: Everyone can start practizing that, reply-to flamage, via private
mail, OK? :]
