 Create a makefile with configure.  
 You need gcc version 2.0 or later to compile gforth.  You need gcc version 2.0 or later to compile gforth.
   
 Create a machine description file for your machine, if necessary.  First, type
   
   ./configure
   
 configure has the following useful parameters:  configure has the following useful parameters:
 -direct-threaded: setup for a direct threaded interpreter; this is faster    --enable-force-reg      Use explicit register declarations if they appear in

    advantage over indirect threading.                            some processors (default disabled).
     --enable-direct-threaded      Force direct threading. This may not work on
                                   some machines and may cause slowdown on others.
                                   (default processor-dependent)
     --enable-indirect-threaded    Force indirect threading. This can cause a
                                   slowdown on some machines.
                                   (default processor-dependent)
     --with-debug     specifies option -g to compile with debug info (default)
      --without-debug  omits the -g switch and creates smaller images on
                       machines where strip has problems with gcc style
                       debugging informations.
     --help: tells you about other parameters.
   
 -without-debug: omits the -g switch and creates smaller images on machines  
    where "strip" has problems with gcc style debugging informations.

 gmake  make
   
   If your make has trouble with the Makefile, "make gforth" might work.

 If your installed gcc isn't called "gcc" (eg. called "gcc-2.6.1"), type  If your installed gcc isn't called "gcc" (eg. called "gcc-2.6.1"), type
   
 gmake CC=<whatever you call your gcc>  make GCC=<whatever you call your gcc>
   
 instead.  instead.
   
   Now you can check whether your shiny new Forth system works. Say
   
   make test
   
   To make the documentation, type
   
   make -k gforth.info gforth.ps html
   
   If everything is allright, you may want to install gforth. Type
   
   make install
   
   You may want to override the defaults for the directories. E.g., if
   you want to install in the /gnu hierarchy instead of in the default
   /usr/local hirarchy, say
   
   make install prefix=/gnu
   
   Alternatively, you can specify the prefixes with configure.
