These steps are needed to compile and run what you download from the
Gnome CVS tree:

1) Install needed libraries.  Essentially, you need gnome-libs, gtk+, glib,
   imlib, and all the other normal Gnome stuff.  For now, just get the 
   latest and greatest, since we are tracking Gnome pretty closely. 

2.a) To compile Gnomehack from a source tarball, uncompress the tarball, and
    in the gnomehack-1.0.x directory, type "./configure" If it complains
    about missing stuff, go get and install the stuff it complains about.
    When you get the "./configure" script to finish setting things up, you
    will simply want to type "make" to compile everything.

2.b) To build Gnomehack from CVS, go to the nethack directory, and type
   "./autogen.sh" This will run the configure script. If it complains about
   missing stuff, go get and install the stuff it complains about. When
   you get the "./autogen.sh" script to finish setting things up, you will
   simply want to type "make" to compile everything.

3) Install Gnomehack. Basically (as root) you will want to do the following:
    make install

4) Read doc/Guidebook to learn about nethack (if you have never played 
    before).  You might want to visit the Official nethack web page at
	http://www.win.tue.nl/games/roguelike/nethack/ 
    and you might want to visit the GnomeHack web page at:
	http://www.xmission.com/~andersen/erik/gnomehack/gnomehack.html

    One common thing you might want to do is set up a ~/.nethackrc
    file. This will allow you to select between the text and the Gnome user
    interfaces (both interfaces should have been compiled into the nethack
    binary).  I have the following in mine:
	OPTIONS=windowtype:Gnome,color
	#OPTIONS=windowtype:tty,color
	OPTIONS=name:Gandalf,male
	OPTIONS=catname:Morris
	OPTIONS=dogname:Fido
	OPTIONS=number_pad,lit_corridor
	OPTIONS=hilite_pet,number_pad,showexp,showscore,time

5)  If you want to play the console version (which should also be compiled in
    by default, just change your .nethackrc file to comment out the 
    "windowtype:Gnome" stuff, and uncomment the "windowtype:tty" line.

6) Type "nethack" and enjoy!
