[ADMB Users] ADMB in standard package formats

I can work the man page; I have thus far been responsible for it.
I assume we don't want to write a 5460 line beast of a man page;
however any content that people want included in the man page shown in
the Debian package.
Honestly, I think that focusing on the standard Linux build process
and including the man page in the default build process will  make
getting admb into the standard linux pipeline.
Barak Pearlmutter is probably a critical resource for this activity;
however he cannot work on this alone.  Has anyone looked at the
patches he has suggested? If the build process needs to be cleaned up,
who within admb
is willing to work with us on it?
