It more or less works on a PII-450. I suspect an equivalent Alpha or
PowerPC (maybe even a little slower, since they have lightyears better
floating point) would also work.
However, there are some syncing problems with audio because I'm using
a non-preemptive thread library at the moment. (Don't worry; it
doesn't sync correctly under Linux, either.)

Well, I posted a notice about where to find them. I'll make a pkg
when it stabilizes a little more.
