Actually, kinput2 has made it to the official tree, 
finally. Both kinput2 and canna can be found in 

Note: the kinput2 ebuild builds a kinput2 with canna
support ONLY. I don't use Wnn or any of the others,
and didn't want to make ebuilds for software I don't
use or know well.

There is an ebuild for a canna/Wnn-enabled kinout2
in gentoo's bugzilla (that someone else wrote). Not 
sure if this will become two separate kinput2 ebuilds, 
or one merged ebuild.

Finally--the problems some people had installing,
though never completely solved, seemed to be due to
some missing /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/config/* files, 
needed for xmkmf (cross-platform build system used
by canna and kinput2) to work correctly. I believe 
Jack told me he had accidentally removed X from his 
USE vars at one point, which may have had something 
to do with it.

Anyway, if anyone has problems installing it please
post your problems at
