A lot of web sites seem to be putting up instructions on what to get 
and how to install it independently; maybe some of these are not 100% 
correct, and the people who are having difficulty might not have read 
readme.1st at all.

On a related note, perhaps the DJGPP Installer could fix this problem 
once and for all. I never managed to make it work, though, and I 
already have a full working installation ;)
