Thanks to CMake, building on Windows systems is not much
harder. First, install CMake from www.cmake.org. You can use
Cygwin if you prefer, but CMake in Cygwin does not generate
Visual Studio project files. Once the Windows version of
CMake is installed, bring up a command prompt and 'cd' to the
directory the CrissCross sources are in. Once there, type

Major warning about Visual Studio compiles: we do NOT support
compiling with Visual Studio 6.0. While we personally prefer

use a newer compiler, but that is beyond the scope of this
document.
