Good, this means that "configure" is doing its job! It will take a while 
to accommodate all requests and setup the system properly, but then you 
will be ready to build.

No, it's not Windows based. The DLL is needed for cross-platform 
functioning of Java extensions, for example. So it is a Windows DLL but 
with the default options you need it when building on other systems too.

place it into the right directory.
