Alien has nothing to do with this.  All required files
are .tar.gz.

And, if we were missing some shared objects, I'd expect error messages
which point that way.  Last time I tried, this stuff
simply hung and sat there forever, without anything about
libraries or whatsoever.  Supprt@fonix.com did drop the case
it seems, never got any helpful replies.  30 days cost-free
installation support is over I guess...

But hey, I learned a lesson.  I now know why binary-only
software on Linux is really evil.
