you are right. An ac++ executable is needed to compile Puma while Puma 
is needed to compile ac++. The solution is to install the Puma source 
code on a platform for which a binary ac++ is available. Then you 
perform only the weaving part of the compilation process with 'make 
weave'. Then you can copy the whole directory tree to your target 
machine and compile it without the need for an ac++ executable for that 

If you don't have access to a Linux machine, ask for a woven Puma source 

Best regards,

PS: Did you already evaluate ac++ on a supported platform?
