/usr/local namespace by default). Uncomment OSSLIBS on OpenBSD.

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install slstatus (if
necessary as root):

    make clean install

See the man page for details.


Configuration
-------------
slstatus can be customized by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the
source code. This keeps it fast, secure and simple.

Cleaning up the whole codebase it the goal before thinking about a release.
