Rebuilding from sources:

To rebuild from sources, you can use the Makefile in the src subfolder.  Note that MGNAT must be compiled using GNAT 3.13p, and also that the Makefile must be run from a UNIX shell (e.g. Cygwin, at ).  "make install" will then copy the files.  Note that you will have to change Makefile and jMakefile to reflect your directory structure (look for "c:/d/rsrch..." and replace and also "c:\d\rsrch...").
