There is one; it is called "README.Windows". It begins by explaining
that you should install Cygwin to use Cactus on Windows. The
information in there is unfortunately old; for example, it lists
versions that are known to work, but these versions are old and no
one seems to have updated them recently. Most current developers
seem to not use Windows, but the Mac sections of the build system
have recently been polished.
Lydia, thanks for your hint regarding the make problem. If you use
Cygwin and have additional information, do you want to help us by
updating this file?
