Hi Kevin,

Since you are a commercial customer, and RML2PDF is closed-source and
so will not be an ubuntu package any time soon, I will reply via
direct email in a few minutes.

For everyone: we don't actually produce the ubuntu packages, and were
surprised last year to find out they existed. We have been learning
and talking to the people who make them over the last couple of
releases, to try and make it as easy as possible, and we expect our
forthcoming 2.3 release (next couple of weeks) to include more
dependencies. However, as far as I know the scope of
ubuntu-reportlab would be the open source package including _rl_accel.
