Dear SAC users,

I would like to have Sac v101.5 intalled at Cygwin 1.7.17-1 under Windows 7.
I follow de instrucctions in the Readme file "Readme.buildsac", but when i
execute ./configure command, cygwin give me error:

*$ ./configure*
*checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no*
*checking build system type... i686-pc-cygwin*

Can someone help me with that error, i don't know how to fix it.

I will be very grateful, thanks.

    Dear Juan Luis,

    Looks like you need to install the GNU Readline libraries, including the developer versions.
    These are available in the Cygwin setup program.
