As I implied, I have gforth64-0.7.9_20150825.exe installed, but are you saying that I should build and install this?


If so, please forgive me, but what do I do with that file?

You can't build a clean git checkout without having Gforth installed.  It's ok

to have an older Gforth installed, but the git repository does not contain

automatically created stuff, only sources.


If you want to build from scratch, get a snapshot, build and install it.  You

can then update to git head, and build from that.
