Trying to install/make on Win32. . . unsuccesfully:(

V Users Discussion Group,
>From the top, hello to everyone tuning in here. I just found out about V
yesterday (almost by accident),
and am excited about developing programs using this utility. I was trying
to get ahold of the X11 libraries, but all in all this looks like a ten
times better solution.
I've downloaded the source code, and the documentation too, and am have some
problems building the library objects using make. I'm using the CYGNUS
CYGWIN compiler on a Windows 32 bit platform(Windows 95) and cannot seem to
run a good "g++" command with "-l" linking. If there is no linking, the
program pieces make just fine. Whenever there is a "-l" specification, the
"ld" facility hangs with the following typical error message:
g++ -o /V/bin/gnuwin32/vgen /V/obj/gnuwin32/vgapp.o /V/obj/gnuwin32/vgcmdw.o
/V/obj/gnuwin32/vgcode.o /V/obj/gnuwin32/vgmdlg.o /V/obj/gnuwin32/vgdlmdlg.o
/V/obj/gnuwin32/vgrc.o -L/V/lib/gnuwin32 -lV -lcomctl32 -mwindows
/CYGWIN/H-I586~1/i586-cygwin32/bin/ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol
_WinMainCRTStartup; defaulting to 00401000
\i586-cygwin32\lib/libcygwin.a(libcmain.o): In function `main':
reference to `WinMain@16'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [/V/bin/gnuwin32/vgen] Error 1
So, I can successfully compile the main package, (srcwin directory), but
cannot for the life of me do anything with the appgen, iconed, icons, draw,
drawex, examp, texted, tutor, or vide directories.
Any help would be appreciated. I don't have that much experience with the
make command, and figure that this is probably just a symantic or grammatic
error somewhere in one of the makefiles.
