i'm not familiar with unix audio processing software.  the windows stuff 
costs mucho $$ and is developed by large companies.  there are freebie 
compressors and such but they don't compare with things like Waves, 
iZotope, TCWorks, etc...  TC for example develops multi-thousand $$ 
dedicated fx boxes, and they also sell software versions that presumably 
use similar algorithms.

you might as well just buy a real outboard compressor.  probably even an 
alesis 3630  (very cheap) would be good enough.
