Sure.  I'm not touching the sources.

Of course.

I have added the following note in README:

> 1) Installation on a i386 Linux host (for Windows read tcc-win32.txt)
>    ./configure
>    make
>    make test
>    make install

"make test" is uncommon, and a bit misleading since there is
a tests directory.  Would you object to using the more traditional
"make check"?
