how about having configure scripts so that if ppl compile it themselves,
it will compile for their cpu/s, otherwise set -march=i386 (lowest common

A question while I'm here -- has anyone ever tried to get sword running
under WINE on a *nix box?  or using the WINE libraries or anything like
that?  I haven't actually had much to do with WINE for about 2 years, and
so can't quite remember what you can do with WINE, but I was thinking that
perhaps that could be a way of trying to use the same frontend under both
win32 and <*disclaimer--being silly*> the _proper_ operating systems...
;)  Do the WINE library files allow you to do GUI stuff under *nix, or is
it basically for all the backend stuff?

nic...  :)
