Essentially there is nothing to it; it compiles out-of-the-box.
The only thing to look after is to set USELOC=0. Both OSUNIX=1 and
OSDOS=1 will compile. I choose OSUNIX=1.
Be prepared to ignore a _lot_ warnings about signed/unsigned comparisons
or compile with ASSERT_ON=0. There are a few freaking warnings though;
'expression is always one due to the limited range of the datatype' or
something similar in the lexical analyser. It backtraces to zz_length[]
as far I could see in my limited time. However, I could find no strange
behaviour (the manuals lout'ed just fine).
The makefile needs a little patch to (un)install the *.exe's right.
This is straightforward though. I recall there is a scripted version 
for gnu-win32's install.exe which can manage '.exe's, but the makefile
uses 'cp' and 'chmod' quite extensively, so a patch is still needed.

Hope this helps.
