I have stopped doing "precompiled" versions of the PennMUSH server for a number of reasons ...
If you would like compile your own, take a look at the web page How to make changes, including compiling. This page shows how to compile SMAUG, including discussions about the difference between source and object, and what 'linking' is. Much of it is relevant to PennMUSH.
If you have problems compiling, post a question to the PennMUSH forum

There are various ways of reading PDF (Portable Document Format) files. One is to use Adobe Acrobat Reader which is a free download. There are also other readers available, for instance using Mac OS you can use their Preview program to read it.
The PDF version can be downloaded from:
