I am trying to get the source code and, preferably, build files for building Gretl on Windows.  I'm finding it very difficult.

The site http://gretl.sourceforge.net/win32/ says "If you want to build gretl for Windows yourself, you can download the gretl latest source package at" http://sourceforge.net/projects/gretl/ "and take a look in the win32 sub-directory."

I went to that page, and there is a single Download button, which downloads a setup for an executable version of the program which has no wind32 sub-directory or source files.

Then, I tried to use a CVS command line, passing module names which I had from Sourceforge SCM repositories list at

I get "cvs checkout: Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password".

Can somebody please tell me, step by step, how I can simply get the project source code and, preferably, any build files for a Windows?
