The next draft is on line

Typo fixed (ty Øystein).

"Copy DLLs" is adapted (ty Holger)

Makefile, lib\Makefile, config.gui and nardy.bat are in one self-extracting
file now.

config.gui is changed (no NLS) so libintl-1.dll or libintl.dll aren't needed
in the installed directory anymore.

nardy.bat is changed (ty Holger)

"Compiling a new build" is much user friendly now (ty Holger)

Yes, not needed if one only uses nardy.bat to create a build.

Yes, once 5. a is deleted, that paragraph is a bit 'lost' there.
Yet: "7. Compiling a new build" has to be done time after time and "5. Copy
DLLs only once".
So... for the moment I leave it there?

Bad  habit of me: better to have too much than too less.
It is removed.

I change "nardy.bat" to a more 'professional' ;-) version.
But mingw\lib is still there as it is recommended by the MinGW developpers

I choose for "My Computer" :-)
