maybe is the right time to check libs versions... GTK are old enough
and already both no cygwin, *nix and macosX newer ones (with more
performances on mixed thread, where mixed thread appliable like dual
core processor +HT than report to OS 4 cores, a real core have a
different cache code managing of a virtual core like on a HT), GCC4 is
soooo old, more and big improvement made since 4.1, more again on 4.2
(and maybe setup makefile to create target as i686, not anymore i386,
to allow GCC enable advanced features, no less than i686 is required to
run a viewer)
