After gunzip and tar the cfrontend directory has been created.

I would like to compile some C++ program. What do I have to to? I am
working on Windows 2000.

I tried to invoke files from cfrontend/x86/llvm-gcc/bin, for instance, gcc:
$ ./gcc -v
./gcc: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

First off, you are using the wrong version of the C front-end: if you
are using Windows, you should not be using the FreeBSD C front-end.

On Windows, we highly recommend using Cygwin, as native Windows (without
Cygwin) support is in early stages. So, you would need to install
Cygwin and then build your own version of the C front-end. The
directions to build the C front-end are here:
