Unless someone else wants to volunteer, I'd be willing to look into
trying to put together a Fink OpenMCL package.

Whoever does it, I think that it'd be ideal if the Fink and Debian
packages were kept as functionally equivalent as possible (e.g., as
CVS snapshots as of the same date, etc.)

At the moment, the Fink distribution seems to be transitioning towards
a new 0.4.1 release (to address OSX 10.2 compatibility issues, I assume.)
The 0.4.1 distribution seems to be there (and most of the package descriptions
seem to view it as "current"), but the main web page seems to imply that
the current version is 0.4.0a.  I don't know whether 0.4.1 packages are
built in exactly the same way as previous versions (but I assume that it's
fairly easy to find out ...)
