-What do you need:
-----------------
-machine OS: Unix/Linux  (MingW/Cygwin on MS Windows)
-compiler  : gcc         (GNU C Compiler !!)
-utilities : make        (GNU make       !!)
-
-  - Gtk+ v1.2.8      or higher package from <http://www.gtk.org>
-          Available? Type this to find out: 'gtk-config --version'
-  - GdkPixbuf v0.8.0 or higher package from <http://www.gnome.org>
-          Available? Type this to find out: 'gdk-pixbuf-config --version'
-
-What to do first:
-----------------
-When you need GUI support:
-
-    - install Glib/Gtk+ package: (make sure the shared libs are found)
-    - install GdkPixbuf package: (make sure the shared libs are found)
-
-         (GdkPixbuf doesn't install easily on every platform)
-         (Perhaps we can help to get it working:  'make -i' )
-
-Configuring the (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 directory.
-
-All supported formats are enabled. If you need to, you can disable one by
-adding an option like "--disable-format". For more information about the
-autoconf configure script, just type 'configure --help'.
-  
-Make the (X)MedCon project:
---------------------------
-type: 'make'
-
-Install the (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 installation dir, make
-sure to become "root" before the actual installation. For the executables to
-be found you could make links to them from a bin-directory included in your
-"PATH" or add the distribution bin-directory to this environment variable.
-Try to run the newly installed executables. When they can not find a library,
-make links or add the distribution lib-directory to your "LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
-environment variable or something appropriate for your O.S.
-
-Uninstall the (X)MedCon project:
--------------------------------
-type: 'make uninstall'
-
-Libraries & package structure:
------------------------------
-The relation between it all, is as follows:
-
- Extra             (X)MedCon              (X)MedCon
-Packages            library               programs
