Thank you for looking Frank!  I have only been setting the variables myself
and don't know enough about vc makefiles to much more at this point.  I'll
definitely get this written up if you can get it building.  I'm stuck though so far.

I've bundled together just the basics that I think are needed.


Linux variables seem to look for:
INGRES_LIB -> ingres\lib
INGRES_INC -> ingres\files

They aren't officially distributed separately as a library package, so I might have missed
something doing it ad-hoc.

I'd be thrilled if you get a chance to peek at it.  I'll be in IRC if you have 
thoughts to share or things I should try.

Thank you,
