I have added the copy of the libraries (i.e. Win32libs/libgmp.lib
Win32libs/libtcl.lib Win32libs/libtk.lib) to the <installdir>\MS-Win32
directory. The necessary headers are now placed in in the
<installdir>\Include directory.

I have corrected this (and the same problem which also occurs in hash.c)

I have done that a long time ago. To be completely honest, I have not
finished the job (but I had an executable), because I wanted at this
time to use the DOS console for stdin/stdout and not rewrite one my own
console. Finally I have decided to used Visual C for (I thought)
   1) easing the porting of Tk by mimicking the job already done by
the Tk crew,
   2) to use the standard development tools of Windows.

Finally point 1 was a miss and point 2 was a mess!
