Was out last night, and didn't get back until late. Hence, the post-facto update now.
Actually managed to use Bio++ for the first time, yesterday. Got some code up and running that calls the library to make a calculation. This was harder than it should have been, because of dependency hell issues.
Also, managed to push my changes to the project (i.e. the addition of CMakeLists.txt) up to github. So I'm making slow progress there, too.
Things still going more slowly than I want them too, though. Hoping that this is just a rough patch that will be over soon.
