Document problems (with WinZip) whereby *.tit files get converted

to DOS-style EOLs while unpacking Leim.

`-traditional' option. (The `configure' script should do that
automatically with Emacs 21 and later.)
* Building the Windows port with Leim fails in the `leim' directory.
The error message might be something like this:
Converting d:/emacs-21.1/leim/CXTERM-DIC/4Corner.tit to quail-package...
Invalid ENCODE: value in TIT dictionary
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"../src/obj-spd/i386/emacs.exe"' : return code
This can happen if the Leim distribution is unpacked with a program
which converts the `*.tit' files to DOS-style CR-LF text format. The
`*.tit' files in the leim/CXTERM-DIC directory require Unix-style line
endings to compile properly, because Emacs reads them without any code
or EOL conversions.
The solution is to make sure the program used to unpack Leim does not
change the files' line endings behind your back. The GNU FTP site has
in the `/gnu/emacs/windows' directory a program called `djtarnt.exe'
which can be used to unpack `.tar.gz' and `.zip' archives without
mangling them.
* When using Xaw3d scroll bars without arrows, the very first mouse
click in a scroll bar might be ignored by the scroll bar widget. This
is probably a bug in Xaw3d; when Xaw3d is compiled with arrows, the
