Apparently Mupen64 is still kinda alive, but it might be awhile before any updates on the site.
Just thought I should point out that you didn't dig deep enough to get the 1.4 source...
That's the complete source package, including the RSP sources, whose links are broken on PJ64's site. Hopefully, you know someone who can do more with it than I can. I think that the above poster is on the right track, that once you get a working 1.4 Linux build you're likely to get the support for a 1.7 build.
I'll be staying on top of this subject, too, and I hope to see a well-performing N64 emulator on the horizon. I've got some back-up images from my favorite Zelda cartridge I'm itching to play.
