For MSVC++: open the project file contained in the 'msvc++'
subdirectory, choose either Release or Debug target, and build.
For Cygwin: open a shell and follow the instructions in the INSTALL and
README files. It basically boils down to:
$ make install
(By default the resulting library will be dependent on the Cygwin DLL;
to avoid this give the option --host=mingw32 to 'configure'.)
In either case you will get a static library you can link with your
programs using the 'mad.h' header file.
