If there ain't a simple way to compile on win then study all these 24 pages, I 
think I'll surrender! ;))

Anyway, page 5 you describe the mess with 3 gcc existings on win, but you 
don't suggest which is the best and don't mention that in fpc cvs does exist 
a binw32 directory with gcc tools.
So which is the simplest way to compile it?

Moreover I think that a previous version of fpc binaries will suffice to 
compile latest cvs sources but reading paragraph 1.2.5 I don't understand if 
any version of ppc will suffice or what version is needed.

After that there are some pages about obtaining source from cvs, which I 
skipped, and suddenly I found myself reading without understanding anything.

So let's assume I'm a completely idiot and I have downloaded fpc from cvs to 
compile it on a windows system. Do I have any hope to compile it?

Bye Uberto
