Follow-up Comment #2, task #7288 (project administration):

The instructions were presented to show that the condition to use
any POSIX compliant Free OS can be met.

In order to utilize the application for native compiling, the
user must provide a suitable gcc environment. 

But that is a gcc configuration issue, not the application issue.
The full functionality is available, as demonstrated, for porting
programs developed e.g. in intepreted languages.

The doc/* content is generated from the code, in this case from a
Perl library (See 'docs' target in ./Makefile):


The function bin/ handles the documentantion
and it is invoked when program is called with option:

   /path/to/ --help

The documentation therefore belongs to integral part of the Perl
code which is licenced under GPL. 

For user's convenience is has been exported to doc/* files both
in .txt and *.html format.
