NNChat requires a curses library, preferably NCurses. It is also possible
to compile NNChat for Windows via MinGW and use PDCurses instead, but this
includes certain complexities in build process (see Makefile.w32)

0) Check that you have the prerequisites:

   - GNU make
   - GCC 4.3 or later, or LLVM clang 3.x
   - binutils
   - NCurses 5.x, OR PDCurses 3.4 or later

   On Debian or Ubuntu, you could try following to install the requirements:

   sudo apt-get install build-essential libncurses5-dev

1) Edit Makefile (optional)

2) make / gmake

3) Test by running ./nnchat --help

There is no real installation step, you can manually copy the resulting
binary to /usr/local if you wish:

sudo install -m 755 nnchat /usr/local/bin
