 Very preliminary version  
 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
 Make a symbolic link to machine.h, e.g.  
 ln -s decstation.h machine.h  ./configure
 Make a symbolic link from mach32l.fs or mach32b.fs to machine.fs  configure has the following useful parameters:
     --enable-force-reg      Use explicit register declarations if they appear in
                             the machine.h file. This can cause a good speedup,
                             but also incorrect code with some gcc versions on
                             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.
 Edit the Makefile (in particular the SWITCHES variable)  
 Now you can type  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>
   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.
