GNU environment.)  Much thanks to Brady Morgan for the

1) The lelong and leshort function in zverse.cpp needs and
   #include <sys/pctypes.h>

2) "make install" has a problem with the following line in include/Makefile.org 

headers += $$(ls *.h)

install -o vhdllib -g vhdllib -m a+r,u+rw $(ls *.h)
/bin/sh: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected
make[1]: *** [just-install] Error 2

The following seemed to work for me:
headers += $(wildcard *.h)

3) After installation the following message is given:

sword is installed 
type "make install_config" to install a basic configuration 
Type "make register" to help us keep track of how many people
have seen it.

Typing make install_config actually tries to modify
/etc/sword.conf although my prefix in the Makefile.cfg is

Maybe the tool wouldn't look anywhere else other than /etc/ for
global settings(?)
