You can get the sources as a tar.gz or svn, from the BFL webpage on

We're actually in the process of porting BFL from autotools to cmake, which
will result in the ability to build shared libraries. Although, the LTI
matrix library only builds static libraries, so that might be a problem... I
have to look into that some more.

I didn't know that! As far as I remember, Newmat has shared libraries too, so
it might be a good idea to include Newmat with the shared BFL library.

BFL actually uses 2 wrappers: 1 for its matrix library, and 1 for its random
number generator (rng) library. As for now, Boost is already supported as the
rnd lib. We hope to have boost support for the matrix lib one day. For sure
we could use some help for that one! :-)
