OK, so I'll tell them to just try that.

But before I do, I'd like to know whether the Makefile problem ("No
rule to make target `choose-temp.o', needed by `xgpc.exe'") is
solved or not. I've seen contradictory statements about that. I.e.,
does the current GPC build with gcc-2.95* without this problem (on
any platform)?

Too bad. :-(

If you manage to build it again, please let me know.
