BAD! The libgea-package contains the POSIX version of GEA. You will need
to install it to be able to compile GEA applications and if you like to
run them outside of ns-2. So unpack, compile it in a separate directory.
Copying on top of the ns-2/gea directory will overwrite the ns-2 version.

There is a prepare.pl script that you should prefer for this step.

Should work if you do not overwrite it in step 3).

If this works, I will add this procedure to the nsnam wiki. There is no
tutorial. You will find some examples in the test directory. For more
background information read
. Maybe I find some time to start a tutorial in the wiki.
As a side notice - I just tried to compile gea with cygwin and gcc3.4.4
and it failed because of problems with winsock2.h ... I will work on this.
