Has anyone tried to run this under wine?  I'd like to try, but it
tries to load the entire (126 Mb) setup program into memory, which is
just a little larger than my virtual memory when X is running.  If no
one's tried, would someone mind sticking the command-line compiler
somewhere where I can d/l it, so I could try? (please don't e-mail it
to me :)

This is almost exactly the situation I had in mind when I kept a small
windows partition on an old hard disk I had laying around
... unfortunately it crashed :(
