I wasn't sure how to chop up the paragraph below, so I won't try.
As far as I am concerned, README.win-386 can go. We have the conpile
instructions going into INSTALLATION so that is covered.
The description of my four defines is loose, but there really isn't any
point in clearing them up until the real defines are changed into more
meaningful and platform independent ones. They still need to be recorded
somewhere. We used to keep ifdef info in the Makefile. Where are we
keeping it now that the makefile is going away?
