What do you need:
----------------
machine OS: Unix/Linux  (MingW/Cygwin on MS Windows)
compiler  : gcc         (GNU C Compiler !!)
utilities : make        (GNU make       !!)
packages  : only for the graphical front-end

a) Glib/Gtk+2 (default)

  - Check out http://www.gtk.org/download/

b) Glib/Gtk+1 (requires ./configure --enable-gtk1)

  - Glib v1.2.x from <ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/glib/1.2/>
          Available? Type this to find out: "glib-config --version"
  - Gtk+ v1.2.x from <ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/gtk+/1.2/>
          Available? Type this to find out: 'gtk-config --version'
  - GdkPixbuf v0.x <ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/gdk-pixbuf/>
          Available? Type this to find out: 'gdk-pixbuf-config --version'

What to do first:
----------------
When you need GUI support:

  - Check Glib/Gtk packages are installed and shared libs can be found

Configure (X)MedCon project:
---------------------------
type: './configure' or 'sh ./configure'

The default installation directory is "/usr/local/xmedcon". You can use
the option "--prefix" to override this default location.

All supported formats are enabled. If you need to, you can disable it by
adding an option like "--disable-format". For more information about the
autoconf configure script, just type 'configure --help'.
  
Make (X)MedCon project:
----------------------
type: 'make'

Install (X)MedCon project:
-------------------------
type: 'make install'

You must install the project, since the files in the source directory are
merely wrapper scripts. If you use the default prefix dir, make sure to
become "root" before doing the actual install. For the programs to be found
you could make links to them from a bin-directory included in your "PATH" or
add the install bin-directory to this environment variable instead.

Try to run the newly installed executables. If they can not find a library,
make links or add the install lib-directory to your "LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
environment variable or something appropriate for your O.S.

Uninstall (X)MedCon project:
---------------------------
type: 'make uninstall'

Libraries & package structure:
-----------------------------
The relation between it all, is as follows:
