Before compiling HeNCE, you must have installed PVM 3.2.4 or later in directory pvm3 in your home directory.
If you are lucky, your system has a properly installed X windows environment along with a correctly configured ``imake'' facility. Unfortunately, many workstation vendors fail to provide this. This is the major reason that we distribute HeNCE in pre-compiled form.
If all is well on your system, you can build and install htool and its execution environment by following these instructions. The final install step will place everything within the pvm3 directory in your home directory. Attempts to place it elsewhere are discouraged.
If you just wish to build and install the HeNCE execution support software (probably because you have already installed htool for some other machine type), the process is not dependent on correctly installed X software. Hence, it is much more likely to be trouble-free. Again, PVM must be built and installed in pvm3 within your home directory. Follow these steps.
