Well, you must either be running under a different OS or have Cygwin 
installed, because when I try it, it just complains constantly. ("Can't 
find gcc", "can't find cc1", "can't find crt.o", and so forth.) At this 
point, I'm giving up. I only wanted this for the shininess value. It's 
not worth this much trouble...
