I will have to fix them then,  I only have VC++ 6.0,  not 5.0.  Do you have
a list of known or anticipated problems ?  The only thing that is
immediately obvious is that the initial project file add stage only seems to
indicate progress when the mouse pointer is held over the progress box.

OK, thanks.

I tried this,  but the executables seem to be the same as I got when I did
make by itself.  On the other hand <make install-snavigator>  didn't
recurse,  so that's one advantage :-)

Could you post me a build log from your system ?   I want to try to use
Source Navigator as a replacement for a build system we use at work (based
on an old version of Polymake).  I am going to have to make some mods to
alow SN to read our current file build instruction and it would be really
useful to know that the base build was the same.
