It doesn't look hard to package but since it cannot be installed in /usr, I guess it can't go into the main repository ?

It is STRONGLY recommended that you DO NOT install BRL-CAD into /usr as
BRL-CAD provides several libraries that may conflict with other libraries
(e.g.  librt, libbu, libbn) on certain system configurations.

Since our libraries predate all those that we're known to conflict with and
are at the very core of our geometry services and project heritage, we have
no plans to change the names of our libraries at this time.

INSTALLING INTO /usr CAN MAKE A SYSTEM COMPLETELY UNUSABLE.  If you choose
to continue installing into /usr, you do so entirely at your own risk.  You
have been warned.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it (in this case, using our system libraries, patching out warnings, ensuring vendored libs get installed elsewhere, etc). Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
