Hi Colm,

Sorry for the delayed response.  It looks like the orangutan genome is 
available at UCSC (you may have already known this). The best way to 
proceed is to follow the 'How to forge a BSgenome data package' you 
mentioned below. Building the package on your Unix machine is fine. A 
packaged forged by following these directions will be made available on 
all platforms.

Let us know if you have questions or run into problems.
