    5: This file discribes how to install Gforth from a binary distribution
    6: (i.e., a distribution, where the package file name contains a
    7: machine/OS name).
    8: 
    9: Installation is quite simple: Type
   10: 
   11: make install
   12: 
   13: and you are set. You can
   14: 
   15: make check
   16: make bench
   17: 
   18: first, to make sure that the binary works.
   19: 
   20: If you want to know more: A binary distribution contains all the files
   21: of the source distribution, and a few more, in particular the
   22: executable `gforth'. The configuration options we used for creating it
   23: can be seen in config.status. Basically, we use the default; among
   24: other things, this means installation in the /usr/local hierarchy; if
   25: this does not suit you, "make distclean" and continue by reading
   26: INSTALL.
   27: 
   28: The only deviation from the default is with respect to options like
   29: --enable-force-reg, which by default are not used, because they don't
   30: work with all versions of gcc; we use them, if they work with the
   31: compiler we use. We try to give you good performance, but two
   32: compatible machines may require different options for best performance
   33: (e.g., --enable-direct-threading is good for the 486, and bad for the
   34: Pentium).
