As an aside I tried to build the source distribution last weekend
under cygwin and got an internal compiler error from gcc 3.2 when
compiling tree234.c.  I haven't had enough time to track it down any

However with gcc 3.2 20020927 here at work Mercury builds fine.

You can also build using VC++ 6.0 (tested) and 7.0 (should work, but not
tested) see the file README.MS-VisualC.
