I'm afraid we will have to wait until the "make install" for emc2 is safe to 
use and the debian/rules produces a usable package that doesn't break. We 
will have to wait for the emc2 developers to resolve the outstanding issues 
and provide something that works.

 Having an Axis that will work with both emc-1.0 and emc2 is a different ball 
game.. There are a few differences that will result in Axis only working with 
emc-1.0 or emc2 and it would not be a simple exercise to produce two packages 
that would sit side by side on the same system. That said, it may be possible 
to make a few minor changes in emc-1.0 as long as the incompatabilities are 
restricted to the NML layer.

Providing tarballs of both packages would be a simple enough exercise, but 
there would be no guarantee that the compile would be simple or lead to a 
working system - All I can do is take a CVS snapshot or official tarball and 
when it breaks hand you over to the relevant developers..
