I'm using cygwin and gmake on a Windows XP  platform. I have run into the following hassle when I tried to build the library:

There are 4 or 5 lines in the makefiles that read
"ifneq ($(OS),Windows)"

The code underneath was being "made" regardless !
Which caused the build to crash immediately

I had to change these lines to read
"ifneq ($(OS),Windows_NT)"

Afterwards the build went well.

Could you please mend the makefiles ( to make two tests instead of one),
or at least warn Windows users that they should check their OS system variable
if they encounter this problem ?
