Actually, I'm building the complete set. For both amd64 and arm*.

I have built, and use R14 from source from a year or more ago, using 
source from GIT but not paying any attention to packaging. Both for 
amd64 & armel.

I am currently going through the process of building from GIT source 
again, this time packaging. Firstly for amd64 and once complete, for 
armv7hf (I have anumber of ARM devices/requirements).

I use Amarok as an example as that is my media player of choice, and I 
use it to play audio, from ARM devices, over the network.

Amarok armv7hf from nightly builds does not work and I've noticed that 
from building (amd64) using tde_packaging (from git) that the debian 
build does not appear to use cmake but instead uses autotools?. Very 
odd. Is that correct?

Any info appreciated.

Cheers,
Mike.
