Thanks! I did a quick check out and then the usual qmake-qt4 *.pro and
then make, but got a build error:
pcdm-gui.cpp: error: 'class PCDMgui' has no member named 'retranslateUi'
No worries as I figure its a work in progress. I'll go through more of
it this weekend, got to get back to my day job.. :)
