development trunk to occur sometime during next year (2005), after the
merge of the Unicode branch.
Please let me know if you find any bugs in this branch.
Tested on GNU/Linux, Solaris 8, FreeBSD and OpenBSD. Please let me
know if you succeed or fail to use it on other platforms---I'll have a
few tricky test cases for you.
Known problems:
* Mac, Windows and DOS support is broken, probably doesn't
even compile -- this will be solved later.
* Tested on GNU/Linux, Solaris 8, FreeBSD and OpenBSD.

HOW TO COMPILE
--------------
COMPILATION
-----------
The multi-tty branch is compiled the same way as Emacs itself:
make maintainer-clean # (If you have compiled Emacs before)
./configure <your favourite options>
make bootstrap
make install
HOW TO TEST IT
--------------
If you have strange compilation errors, they may be caused by old
*.elc files that are left over from an earlier bootstrap. The `make
maintainer-clean' target deletes them, so it is a good idea to run
that before reporting a bug. (Emacs requires a clean recompilation
after certain kinds of source code changes.)
