 Very preliminary version  You need gcc version 2.0 or later to compile gforth.
   
 Create a machine description file for your machine, if necessary.  First, type
   
 Make a symbolic link to machine.h, e.g.  configure
   
 ln -s decstation.h machine.h  configure has the following useful parameters:
   -direct-threaded: setup for a direct threaded interpreter; this is faster
      on many machines, but needs special support. Unsupported machines will
      ingore this switch. On some CISC machines, direct threading isn't an
      advantage over indirect threading.
   
 Now you can type  -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.
   
   Now type
   
 make  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
   
   make GCC=<whatever you call your gcc>
   
   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.
