   should say so during configuration. E.g.:
   
 make  env CC=gcc-2.7.1 ./configure
   
 If your make has trouble with the Makefile, "make gforth" might work.  You can also pass additional options to gcc in this way, e.g., if you
   want to generate an a.out executable under Linux with gcc-2.7.0:
   
 If your installed gcc isn't called "gcc" (e.g., called "gcc-2.6.1"), type  env "CC=gcc -b i486-linuxaout -V 2.7.0" ./configure

   For paper documentation, print gforth.ps (a Postscript file (300dpi
   fonts, i.e., it works, but does not produce best quality on better
   printers)), or say
   
   make gforth.dvi
   
   and print the resulting file gforth.dvi. You can also get the
   documentation in HTML format by typing
   
   make html
   
   If you prefer plain ASCII documentation, just concatenate the files
   gforth.info-* ('cat gforth.info-*' under Unix).
   
                   Preloading installation-specific code
   
   If you want to have some installation-specific files loaded when
   Gforth starts (e.g., an assembler for your processor), put commands
   for loading them into /usr/local/share/gforth/site-forth/site-init.fs
   (if the commands work for all architectures) or
   /usr/local/lib/gforth/site-forth/site-init.fs (for
   architecture-specific commands);
   /usr/local/lib/gforth/site-forth/site-init.fs takes precedence if both
   files are present (unless you change the search path). The file names
   given above are the defaults; if you have changed the prefix, you have
   to replace "/usr/local" in these names with your prefix.
   
   By default, the installation procedure creates an empty
   /usr/local/share/gforth/site-forth/site-init.fs if there is no such
   file.
   
   If you change the site-init.fs file, you should run "make install"
   again for the changes to take effect (Actually, the part of "make
   install" starting with "rm gforth.fi" is sufficient).
   
 A possible problem:  
                   Multiple Versions and Deinstallation
   
   Several versions of Gforth can be installed and used at the same
   time. Version `foo' can be invoked with `gforth-foo'. We recommend to
   keep the old version for some time after a new one has been installed.
   
   You can deinstall this version of Gforth with 'make uninstall' and
   version foo with 'make uninstall VERSION=foo'. 'make uninstall' also
   tells you how to uninstall Gforth completely.

   2) "%s: Checksum of image ($13579b) does not match the executable ($2468a)
   The Gforth installer should look into the INSTALL file"
   
   A fixed-address image is not only fixed with respect to its base
   address, but also with respect to certain addresses in the gforth
   executable and the threading method. These things are encoded in a
   checksum.
   
   If the checksum of the executable and the checksum of the image are
   not equal, you get the message above. This can be caused, e.g., by
   trying to run an image produced for a direct threading system on an
   indirect threaded system.
   
   Chances are that you unintentionally tried to execute an image from
   the wrong directory. As a remedy, you can determine Gforth's search
   path with the "-p" command line option and with the GFORTHPATH
   environment variable.
   
   On the other hand, if you need to solve the problem by creating a new
   fixed-address image, you can use the steps described above.
