Just a few caveats, and how the DJGPP differs from the 'official'
tree (probably including the diffs).
There are a few tweaks I have that are useful for the DJGPP port
(such as defaulting the prefix to /dev/env/DJDIR instead of /usr/local)
but probably should not be in the official distro.
Also, I mention they need the included and list the
packages needed to run autoconf (unlike most other systems
autoconf runs on, DJGPP platforms don't necessarily include
m4, awk, fileuitls, textutils, etc.).

Okidoki - will add 'em after the 2.50 release.
