Now that I look more thoroughly it seems that 4L is only dynamically linked
to lightscribe, but I have to look better at it.

$srcdir and $pkgdir done

EDA stands for Electronic Design Automation which is basically programs to
design and usually test electronic circuits .

GPGPU is General Purpose GPU which allows to use the GPU as a kind of CPU,
they must be programmed differently, an example of this could be nvidia
CUDA, amd/ati close to metal, or use OpenGL's GLSL (GL Shader Language)
vendor neutral in theory.

It just recently got to a somewhat "usable" status in which segmentation
faults are not the norm. I could always do a svn package though.

interesting, I'll look at it.
