    What seemed a straight forward installation is becoming quite a headache. I followed the exact torch installation instructions posted on http://torch5.sourceforge.net/manual/Install.html (Native Windows instructions). However, when I invoke the 'nmake' command, I get the following error when linking pixman:

    Linking C shared library ..\..\png.dll
       Creating library png.lib and object png.exp

    I couldn't find any help regarding this topic on the net, at least not when installing the torch application. Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    Thank you,
