Re: gEDA-user: Embedded polygon

   Is there any documentation on how to use "polygon hole"?

Is there a better technique that lends itself to easy adjustment?

The current development version of pcb includes a new feature
"polygon holes" :-)

See the attached screenshot.

To get this version of pcb you'd have to download the current source from
git and compile it locally. This page describes how to download the source
from the git repository

Compile is straight forward:
git clone git://git.gpleda.org/pcb.git
cd pcb
./configure --enable-toporouter-output
sudo make install

If you do this for the first time, you most probably have to install
some additional packages from your distro. When in doubt, also install
the package that contains the header files, too.

On debian/testing I recently needed these additional packages for pcb:
        intltool (draws autoconf, automake and autotools-dev )
        libgtk2.0-dev (draws 15 more packagesh)

Hope, this gets you started.
