To build on Unix, run CONF=unix make.
To build on Solaris using Sun cc, run CONF=sun make.
To build on Windows, you need Mingw. See http://www.mingw.org. Edit Make.config to uncomment the Windows section and comment out the rest. Then run CONF=windows make.
(You can download nmake from http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q132084 Rename it to make.exe and put it in your path somewhere. )
I haven't tested the Windows build on Windows itself. I cross-compile using mingw32 on Linux.
