Done.  It wasn't "easy" so much as "packaged" and "supported" that I was 
looking for.  However, since neither aprsdigi nor digined are under active 
development (or maintenance, as far as I can tell), ongoing package support 
seems to be less important.

Bill -
  It looks like aprs4r is off to a good start, but I wanted something that used 
the native ax25 libraries instead of direct serial access.  Well, and 
installing Ruby is about as distasteful as installing a Java VM when you're 
talking embedded.

Thanks for the tips.
