    [W]e felt justified in installing Unix on our computer in the 1980s,
    because we were using it to write a free replacement for Unix.
    Nowadays, since free operating systems are available, the excuse is
    no longer applicable; we have eliminated all our non-free operating
    systems, and any new computer we install must run a completely free
    operating system.  We don't insist that users of GNU, or contributors
    to GNU, have to live by this rule. It is a rule we made for ourselves.
    But we hope you will decide to follow it too.


People who whine about a free program not working under some
proprietary operating system Windows are essentially asking the
maintainers of that program to act in contravention of the above rule.

The thing to do is to bug the maintainers of the *port*, or 
fix it yourself.
