Well if you cd to the circle directory - the one with the src and lib subdirs
and type bin/circle your mud should fire up. This is what the autorun script

>gdb bin/ciecle
gdb> run

and run it under the debugger.

Ich habe Dinge gesehen, die ihr Menschen niemals glauben wuerdet. Gigantische
Schiffe, die brannten draussen vor der Schulter des Orion. Und ich habe
C-Beams  gesehen - glitzernd im Dunkeln nahe dem Tannhaeuser Tor. All diese
Momente werden verloren sein in der wie Traenen im Regen.
