3. Set the environment variable MINGDIR to the compiler directory. If you
use Windows 9x, you can add the line

Test the installation by typing the following on the command line:

- Reading specs from ../lib/gcc-lib/mingw32/3.2/specs

Configured with: ../gcc/configure --with-gcc --with-gnu-ld
--with-gnu-as --host=mingw32 --target=mingw32 --prefix=/mingw

'mingw32' is still the official platform designator registered with the GNU
project, so I think we must keep the directory names unchanged.
Applied to mainline with this correction.

Not even from the first chapter "A general introduction to Allegro"?
