You can checkout the whole repository if you have mercurial installed.

Now it's the question of compiling these things. Set up your include paths correctly. For GKLib I had to add
DMALLOCINC = -I../libmetis/
in the supplied Makefile. libmetis was the position of libmetis.

Metis compiled seamlessly in my case using script although you must add -fPIC to the gcc command.

Finally go to
change Make/option file to point to your metis library location and run
wmake libso
Let me know if you have any problems with that. I can send you the necessary files.

EDIT: ALSO! I removed the -I pointing to the dummy library. I guess that might be important. :-)
