I'll try it again via a clean install, but when I tried 2 weeks ago it 
completely failed.

I will admit that I didn't do a complete Cygwin install, installing 
individual packages as necessary until it was able to build without 
complaint, but there were problems at every step of the way. (There were 
problems with using the particular version of GTKHTML specified in the 
README as well as problems with SVN vs. the last release of GS. And even 
once I got everything compiled, GS crashed upon launch.)

After doing a complete Cygwin install, the script still doesn't work, 
but I'll try with everything installed afresh.
