To build The Ur-Quan Masters, you need at least the following software:

For unix-like platforms (such as Linux, BSD, Solaris, MinGW):
GCC 3.0 - GNU C Compiler
	http://gcc.gnu.org/
	Debian package: gcc

GNU Make 3.80
	ftp://ftp.gnu.org/
	Debian package: make

For Windows:
Microsoft Visual C++ 6 or 7 (or MinGW+MSYS, see INSTALL.mingw for that)
Visual C++ 6.0 Processor Pack (if using VC6, to build MMX-accelerated code)
	http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/downloads/tools/ppack/

For Mac OS X:
Apple Developer Tools (for Mac OS X 10.2 and older)
	http://connect.apple.com/
Xcode Tools (for Mac OS X 10.3)
	http://developer.apple.com/tools/macosxtools.html

Additionally, The Ur-Quan Masters requires the following libraries:
Note that dependancies can differ between different OS's.

OpenGL v1.2 (if HAVE_OPENGL is defined, which is the default)
    Win32 users should have all by default, following is for Linux version:
	http://www.xfree86.org/
	Debian package: xlibmesa-dev OR nvidia-glx OR <vendor specific>
	XFree86 4.x comes with Mesa, which is a clone.
	Note: Mesa is a software emulation. For enjoyable results
	you will need hardware accelerated OpenGL (GLX).
	These usually conflict with mesa (can result in X server crash).

SDL v1.2

	A fairly good multiplatform low level graphics library.
	Homepage: www.libsdl.org

Tremor (alternative for libogg and libvorbis)
	Audio codec to play Ogg Vorbis files, used for music and speech.
	This library avoids floating point math and should be used instead
