I have a stable hamm system at home.

So, to make sure I do things right -

I get from frozen, and recompile it on my hamm box, changing
only the configure line to do --disable-nls, correct?

Should I do anything to the version number?

Anything else to keep in mind?

If someone more knowledgeable wants to do this, please, be my guest
(or even if someone needs a temporary account on my hamm box and
doesn't mind the slow phone line...).
