 THe point is I tried to compile using the directions in README.WIN.
 And i thought MAYBE there was a slim chance that configure would 
 work. What could i lose running Configure i already read the 
 instructions the were supposed to work. I hate being given a label of 
 not reading docs. Because i do. I would not be where i am now if not. 
 Maybe there is a sterotype out that no reads docs?
