Well, not quite well. Due to errors in the Makefile you have to type "make"
some times, or copy some libraries to /lib to have them found. And the
resulting executable doesn't work with WinPT, Werner thought this might be
due to different handle mappings. But it does compile, I did it myself.

The executable on works quite well on win32.

Although a fast and cheap internet connection is very usefull when you want
to download it. It's quite large.
