The package you downloaded is the source of Glide. Therefore, before you
install Glide, you need to compile it. If you have an existing
installation of Emacs (as you would if you install it through Cygwin
setup), you'll need to manually install Glide. Try to follow the
instructions in README.BUILD. You still need to have gnat on your system
before you can compile Glide.

It took the computational power of three Commodore 64s to fly to the moon.
