Nope... nothing exists ... sorry about that .

If you have CVS access it would be much better to use CVS versions as 
releases get stale very quickly ... I have my CVS repositories in /opt/cvs/
under 'dotgnu'.

So coming back to

You have to download

treecc, pnet , pnetlib and pnetC to get a full fledged development system.
cscctest is our compiler unit test framework ... download it too to be sure.

cd /tmp/
mkdir dotgnu
tar -xzvf ~/treecc-0.1.4.tar.gz
cd treecc-0.1.4 
make install # (as root)

Repeat process for pnet ...

Building pnetlib is redundant right now , as the resulting binaries still
have errors... But that also is the ./configure && make

Read pnet/tools/ which is our automated build framework ... That
runs a number of tests on the runtime ...

The distributed execution environment is still under heavy design, so I
guess the interfaces don't matter much ...

I'm in a real hurry .. please do ask if you need more info ... I can cookup
