macro packages gettext.m4, lcmessage.m4 and progtest.m4 from
the directory `/aclocal'

Now type `make' to compile the package.
You can now simply run the make command to perform the
compilation (making use of the generated Makefiles). Once
completed, run the command src/gword to start up your
And that's all there is to it.
