[Frama-c-discuss] Frama-C compilation: questions on APRON, test error and missing plugin?

I have successfully compiled Frama-C Lithium on Debian Lenny 5.0 (I
can give my installation notes if needed). I have a few questions and
remarks regarding the compilation process:

* APRON is not mentioned explicitly in the INSTALL. I stumble upon it
after reading a configure warning. You should probably include a
pointer to in the INSTALL file.

* In APRON installation process, it is said one can optionally use
Parma Polyhedra Library (PPL). As it was necessary to patch PPL, I
have not bothered with it. Is there any use of it within Frama-C

* During configure, two plugins are missing, "miel" and "wp". I
haven't found any reference to them on Frama-C web site or through
Google. Are there experimental plugins, non-public ones or simply
available somewhere?

* After doing a "make tests", there was one error:

* I'm looking for Free Software / Open Source automatic provers that
could be used in conjunction with Jessie plugin / Why. From Frama-C
web site, I have successfully compiled and installed Alt-Ergo and CVC3
(without zchaff). Are there any other provers available?

Are excluded:
 * Simplify: binary only;
 * Yices: binary only, non-commercial;
 * Z3: non-commercial.
