Oh, by the way -- if you are using the Gnu make and have a multi-core processor, change the "make install" step to "make -j 2 install", for instance. This tells make to keep two jobs running at the same time to allow you to use that extra core that's usually just idling. If you have a 4-core processor, use "make -j 4 install", etc. With the dual-core processor on my computer, a compile would usually complete every second-and-a-half or so.
