No I haven't. But if I read the page correctly, it is only meant to work
for their raven product and _not_ with the wiggler. I did not see any
libremote for powerpc either.

Anyway, Macraigor seems to be very reluctant about linux. I suggested
once to write a linux driver for them if they could provide me with the
specs on the parallell protocol they use. They did not even answer ... I
suppose they have very tight agreements with providers of commercial
tools.
