 The simplest way to compile this package is:
 
   1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type

    You can give `configure' initial values for configuration parameters
 by setting variables in the command line or in the environment.  Here
 is an example:
 
-     ./configure CC=c89 CFLAGS=-O2 LIBS=-lposix

 Installation Names
