Ok, sounds nice ..

Of course, treecc is a very simple build :)

I think the project would be interested in the build
changes.. so that it can be included in the standard
build system.

A new release ie 0.6.0 has occured today. Could you
check this up against that ?.. I am able to do 
builds of the entire toolset on raw Cygwin. It should
work without pipes , pipes are simply an optimisation
to reduce disk access while compilation.

Also I hope you build pnetlib before building pnetC ?

Get the new release , it's called "stable" ... :)
