Actually, I don't think it'll work striaght from CVS, because the file
called "tn5250-config.h.in" is missing until you run ./autogen.sh on
a UNIX system.

So, tarballs made with "make dist" from a UNIX system unpack & install
just fine in Windows, but the CVS versions do not.

I'll see if I can come up with a workaround for that...
