I say this because the mokomakefile gave me so much frustration when i
tried to use it that i stopped to try for some months, waiting for a
better world :)
In my experience the mokomakefile continuously get incompatible
updates from upstream, and the probability of success of a complete
build is really low (in my case 0%). Anyway, i am talking of the
situation of september-october, so things may have changed.
But when i tried to download and build shr-testing i found the heaven!
Everything builds because the packet versions are fixed. In that
environment you can easily make a port or try to write some new code,
without falling in frustration.
