Please don't use outdated CVS versions.  There are current version on

will be Windows binaries for the pretest versions on

I don't have a windows to test it, but by looking at the code it seems
that you need to install windows versions of the uncompface and
icontopbm executables.  If a windows user could provide us concrete
information (download URLs, ...), we could improve the manual.

Bye, Reiner.
