Hi folks, and a quick hello, myself being new to this list. :)
Here's just a quick note when compiling from git on ubuntu 11.10, I had to add SIMGEAR_LIBRARIES to the linking section on utils/fgpanel CMakeLists.txt, it would fail on missing symbols on libz otherwise.
After this fgpanel (and the whole flightgear) built fine. Now, I am not very familiar with cmake, but I just compared fgpanel files with fgadmin and this was the first difference I noticed (as fgadmin built ok).
