Well, I haven't given up yet but there's already a couple of things I
don't like. It builds it's own make (called wmake) which is not
available in Fedora that I could find, and it also depends on a huge
3rd party source archive. I'm going to download it and take a look to
see what's in it, but it doesn't look promising.
