Thanks, I didn't know about this.  It was on my TODO to make it build
with GCC so it's great that it's done already.

The main reason why the Rik theme is not yet packaged for Debian is
because there's been no release yet.  I feel uncomfortable to package
software that is unreleased as it can be damaging for the upstream
developers' reputation in case there are still known bugs, etc.  I
know the theory that "every new commit is a new release" but it only
works if the downstream maintainer is familiar with the code and can
exercise proper judgement what snapshot to put in a stable distro
release.

(FYI, Debian doesn't require generated tarballs, a Git tag will
suffice.  Preferably signed.)
