difficult (in some unspecified way).

he's on linux on something or other.

is there no "config/make"-type path for the lzma tools?

(personally, i heaved a sigh of relief when tetex went out of fashion so
that _i_ no longer needed to struggle through rebuilding it for all our
platforms.  i understand that \exist people who don't believe in anyone
else's binaries, but i can't be doing with that, myself.)
