    1: Preliminary version
    2: 
    3: You need gcc version 2.0 or later to compile gforth.
    4: First, type
    5: 
    6: configure
    7: 
    8: configure has the following useful parameters:
    9: -direct-threaded: setup for a direct threaded interpreter; this is faster
   10:    on many machines, but needs special support. Unsupported machines will
   11:    ingore this switch. On some CISC machines, direct threading isn't an
   12:    advantage over indirect threading.
   13: 
   14: -without-debug: omits the -g switch and creates smaller images on machines
   15:    where "strip" has problems with gcc style debugging informations.
   16: 
   17: --help: tells you about other parameters.
   18: 
   19: Now type
   20: 
   21: make
   22: 
   23: If your make has trouble with the Makefile, "make gforth" might work.
   24: 
   25: If your installed gcc isn't called "gcc" (eg. called "gcc-2.6.1"), type
   26: 
   27: make CC=<whatever you call your gcc>
   28: 
   29: instead.
