I imagine that most of the problems with NT 3.5.1 have to do with
unexec. I imagine that most of these are fixable if someone has
access to 3.5.1, because winemacs used basically the same unexec
mechanism and DID run on NT 3.51. However, I don't think this is
important enough to hold up the release if it doesn't get dealt with.
If teh developers can figure out where the problems lay, and how to fix
them, I can test the installer (and Xemacs) on NT.3.5.1.
At the moment, I do not have a development environment on the two machines I
have available (i.e. no compilers). But, if Charles can make binary kits
available, I can dowload, do the testing, and report the results, meager as
they can be. :-\
