[pkg-fso-maint] Mokomaze for Debian

Hi Anton,

at the Openmoko user meet in Karlsruhe today I saw mokomaze, and it
looks like a very nice program, and I would be interested in including
it in Debian.

I noticed that the source tarball on the sourceforge page does not
include the usual configure and Makefiles, but rather only configure.ac
etc. It also includes a file that is not in the mokomaze directory. If
you want to create a source package that follows the usual scheme in the
free foftware world, I recommend you create it by running
$ make dist
This creates a tarball with only the required files, including files
generated by automake/autoconf, so that users can go ahead an
run ./configure && make && make install as usual. You should check if
you need dist_mokomaze_DATA instead of mokomaze_DATA in data/Makefile.am

Your configure.ac declares a dependency for gconf-2.0 and mokoui, but it
compiles without either of these. You probably need to remove them, and
add sdl.

Oh, and if I may issue a wish: Could you make the filename of the font
file configurable via a parameter to make? In debian, it is not allowed
to ship copies of fonts, so I would need to
use /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-liberation/LiberationMono-Regular.ttf

If you could release a source tarball that addresses these issues, I’ll
be happy to make mokomaze apt-get install’able.

Greetings and thanks,
