PORTA installation

I want to install PORTA. I am using a win 64 bit OS. I read the installation process but I cannot really get how it works. Can anyone guide me how to install it. For example, what exactly am I supposed to do in the second step "2) Just type 'make". Type make where?

I don't know maybe I'm missing something very obvious but I got stuck

I appreciate any help in advance!!

Thank you!

    That link on git hub is just the source files for the project. You will have to download it (git clone or download zip) and compile it to build the executable. You will need to open a command prompt in the gnu-make directory containing the "Makefile" and run make. Of course, this will require that you have a compiler installed (MinGW, Cygwin, etc). It does look like there is a Visual Studio solution in the win32 directory if you are not familiar with building with makefiles from the command line.
