actually you don't have to rename all the references in any of the 
files.. only in Makefile (just renames the files the rename the refs 
and you should be good to go) (that is if you haven't added anything 
odd that looks for a directory name that is long, I think all te 
directory names were kept short for OS/2 and multi-platform users)

P.S. I haven't tried this myself, just a footnote
