Installing the library

If you are using the source distribution you may install the library by executing the command
`make install prefix=<dir>'
where <dir> is the directory that holds the include and lib directories, default is /usr/local. If you want to install only the headers or import libraries you may do so with the commands `make install-headers' and `make install-libs' respectively.
Building the import libraries requires that you have recent version of dlltool, binutils, GNU make and EGCS in your PATH.
