GTK Project on Launchpad

I've started a C project on Launchpad. It's called gaptsearch. Hopefully no one else has used that name. Here is a link to the launchpad site:

There are no debs available, but if you have an environment where you can use simple Makefiles you can probably compile it. As of this writing I'm using debian squeeze, and the glade package, so if your system is up to these specs you probably won't have any trouble. Here is the launchpad blurb describing the project:

gaptsearch is a gtk program that displays the output of different apt based commands without invoking the commands as root user. It is meant for debian based systems and is strictly for gathering info about your system setup. It does not, for example, perform "install" or "remove" commands and therefore is not really a package *management* tool.
The most recent version installs the program (a single executable) in the directory "/usr/local/bin/". The program displays information that it amasses from the various debian package management tools on your system.

I've added files and folders allowing for a debian package to be built from the program sources. You download and unpack the most recent sources and then execute the following commands:

$ ./configure
$ fakeroot debian/rules binary
Then you switch to the parent directory and install the deb package as usual with the dpkg command as root:

# dpkg -i gaptsearch*.deb
