   12 Q:      When I compile, I get a billion pages of errors.
   13 
   14 A:      Make sure your using the correct C/C++ compiler.  UNIX -
   15         check the main makefile for your OS C/C++ compilers.  Microsoft
   16         Visual C/C++ projects need a "/Tp" inserted in your project
   17         settings.
   18 
   19 Q:	When I compile, I get a bunch of errors due to a missing
   20 	"glx.h" file
   21 
   22 	or
   23 
   24 	I get a bunch of errors due to undefined "glxxx" functions
   25 
   26 A:	You probably don't have an OpenGL library, or haven't specified
   27 	where it is on your system.  On UNIX, the Makefiles look for the
   28 	OpenGL header files in /usr/include or /usr/local/include,
   29 	and the libraries in /usr/lib or usr/local/lib.
   30 
   31 	If you have the libraries already installed somewhere else,
   32 	you'll have to edit the Makefiles, or set the environment variable
   33 	"LD_LIBRARY_PATH" to point to it.
   34 
   35 	If you dont have an OpenGL library, MesaGL is available at:
   36 
   37                 http://www.mesa3d.org

   39 Q:	The MANUAL keeps referring to "tokens" - what are they?
   40 			or
   41 	Pixcon saying that my script has invalid tokens, but they
   42 	look ok.  Whats wrong?
   43 
   44 A:	A token is a character string that is separated by white
   45 	space (<space>, <tab>, <eoln>, <eof>, etc...)  Make sure
   46 	that each token is separated by white space.
   47 
   48 Q:      When compiling under Windoze, the compiler complains about a missing "g3states.h".  You need
   49         to compile and run "mkg3states" and direct the output to g3states.h - ex. "mkg3states>g3states.h",
   50         then move g3states.h to "~/graph/3rd_party/tiff".
