Hi. I spent much time trying to get it to work.. you have to download
the whole fptools directory (from cvs!).. and I think i did some little
patches but I can check out again and compare..
It did compile and I think it's working well but I'm still struggling
getting to use it.. At least the examples do compile!

If you are really interested I would appreciate getting in contact with
you (my private email: marco-oweber a t gmx.de) .. Perhaps we can help
each other. (Becaue I'm not an experienced haskell programmer, yet ;-)
