    Are the license issues finally solved then? Last time I checked
    binaries were not distributable, see for example:

    Also, in one of the many discussions about this piece of software it
    came out that original author of turck-mmcache (the software on which
    eaccelerator is based) now works for Zend. Zend produces a proprietary
    (and expensive) accelerator-sort of product for PHP. It is doubtful
    that they would enable the distribution of something that they would see
    as competing with their product.

    I seem to recall that the people who took over eaccelerator had it in
    mind to do a complete rewrite of the eccalerator code to break any link
    with turck-mmcache, allowing them to relicense eaccelerator. If that
    rewrite is complete, then the software may be distributable. However, I
    have not looked into it for quite a while.

    Regards,

    OMG! That's why it's still unavailable in Debian =\ I didn't knew
    about PHP Licence incompatibility with GPL before.

    So what do you guys think about wrapper package, which allows installing
    eaccelerator like
    $ make-eaccelerator-package
    ?

    As I understand all this legal issues it will be ok.
