	The RPM shouldn't be requiring linc; and the app shouldn't be linking
against 'linc' directly either; it should just link against ORBit2,
which should pull in linc at link time (no pun intended).

	That should work on Linux systems everywhere; failing that, requiring
the liblinc1 on Mdk may help (though as you say the app doesn't need/use
linc itself).

	Either way - ABI/API compatibility is really important to us - so, no
you certainly shouldn't have to re-compile anything to make it run on a
later platform.
