There is no need to create any Makefiles.  Just typing something like

gcc -O3 *.c -o spike

from the command line should do the trick.  Replace 'gcc' with 'g++' if you
use C++ rather than plain C.

The GNU compiler is included in all Linux distributions I have encountered,
and is installed by default.  Makefiles are, as I mentioned above, not
really needed.  The threading code is the only real problem.  I have no
idea how hard this would be; I know nothing about Windows programming.

I hope to see a Linux version of Spike.  A Mac OS X version would be even
cooler, though.  :-)
