You might have missed to download some packages. You didn't mention which 
operating system you had tried it on but on Windows or similar, you do have 
a handful of EXEs to run (bin\win32\ppc386.exe is the compiler itself but 
the additional programs will also be required, depending on the task at hand).

In addition, there is a USER.PDF in the documentation which gives you a 
rather detailed description of how to install it and how to make the first

run with the usual "Hello, world!" sample program.
