Add fixes so it will build with g++ 4.4.2
I've added the standard GNU configure stuff, so you can build and install from source with a simple:
./configure; make ; make install
The current CVS now has simple Makefile to build with gcc under cygwin, so it should also build on other architectures.
I'm going to put in namespaces and change some internal object representations to take advantage of templates (which didn't exist when this project was first conceived). This will definitely break anyone using this library, but should get us to beta stage.
Source code is now available in CVS. This compiles with MSVC and I should have it working with cygwin soon.
Library documentation is forthcoming and will appear in html form initially at the project web site.
