I compiled Lout succesfully (I think) on NT using GNU-Win32. However I
found out that Lout's database functionality did not work as expected. 
When I played around a bit I noticed that a different version compiled on
HP/UX 10.x derived different results from the same source. It had taken
too much time for me already so I had to give up.  

Perhaps someone else can explain the malfunctioning under NT and/or the
differences between HP/UX and Win32.
