    I found a tar of sndfile in the Windows file section. It was a tar 
file which a windows person could not use. I got compiled and on 
/usrlocal/ and the main compile can't find it now. I need to get it set 
up right but it's too late for this sort of work now. I will attack this 
problem tomorrow.

    Also I found zero rpm files.
