Thanks for writing, Allan and thanks for your interest.
I did have a discussion with some Debian folks a couple of years ago. It takes an existing GT.M binary to build GT.M - i.e., it is bootstrapped (not unlike gcc- you have to have a gcc in order to compile a gcc). They understood the issue technically, but didn't seem comfortable with the idea. So, GT.M probably can't be pushed up to the Debian repositories.
In any case, I do plan to package GT.M as a .deb file myself, but I'm probably about a month away from having the bandwidth to do so.

My friends at the GNUmed project and I are wondering if you
would like to join our drive to package as many FOSS EMR
software suites as possible for Debian/Ubuntu. In your
case, your own project :)
If you are interested, please join the Gnumed-devel mailing
list so we can coordinate something:
