enhancesments for shared hosting

* Add a Bundle::Ikiwiki to the source for use with CPAN to install *all*
  the modules ikiwiki can use.
* Add a cpan directory containing a CPAN::MyConfig that can ease use of
  CPAN to install in a home directory on shared hosting providers.
* With these changes, it's pretty easy to install onto nearlyfreespeech.net
  and probably other shared hosting providers like dreamhost. Added
  a tip page documentng the process for nearlyfreespeech.

+[NearlyFreeSpeech.net](http://NearlyFreeSpeech.net) is a shared hosting
+provider with very cheap pay as you go pricing. Here's how to install ikiwiki
+there if you don't have a dedicated server.
+
+* [Get an account](https://www.nearlyfreespeech.net/about/start.php).
+* Create a site using their web interface. Mine is named `ikiwiki-test` and I
+ used their DNS instead of getting my own, resulting in
+ <http://ikiwiki-test.nfshost.com/>
+* Fund it. (Or don't. They gave me 2 cents free funding for signing up, which
+ is enough to pay for 10 megabytes of hosting, or about a thousand typical
+ page views at their current rates.)
+* `ssh` into their server using the ssh hostname and username displayed on
+ the site's information page. For me this was
+ `ssh joeyh_ikiwiki-test@ssh.phx.nearlyfreespeech.net`
+* Set up .profile to use your home directory.
+ echo "PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin" > $HOME/.profile
+ . $HOME/.profile
+* You'll be in the htdocs directory by default, where public web pages are
+ put, so before installing ikiwiki, `cd $HOME`
+* Use `wget` to [[download]] the ikiwiki tarball.
+* Unpack ikiwiki.
+ tar zxvf ikiwiki*.tar.gz
+* Use CPAN to install the perl modules it uses into your home directory:
+ PERL5LIB=ikiwiki:ikiwiki/cpan:. PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 perl -MCPAN -e 'CPAN::Shell->install("Bundle::IkiWiki")'
+ PERL5LIB=ikiwiki:ikiwiki/cpan:. PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 perl -MCPAN -e 'CPAN::Shell->force(install => "Bundle::IkiWiki::Extras")'
+ (This will take a while. As long as the first command succeeds, ikiwiki will be
+ usable. The second command adds extra modules that some plugins use, and
+ installation of some of them might fail.)
+* Now build and install ikiwiki into your home directory.
+ cd ikiwiki
+ export MAKE=gmake
+ perl Makefile.PL INSTALL_BASE=$HOME PREFIX=
+ $MAKE
+ $MAKE install
+* With ikiwiki installed, you can follow the regular [[setup]] tutorial for
+ settng up your wiki. Make sure to set `destdir` to `/home/htdocs/` so that
+ the wiki is published on the web site. I recommend using git for revision
+ control; you can then clone your wiki's git repository as an offsite backup.
+ Here is an example of how I set up a wiki:
+ mkdir ~/wiki
+ cd ~/wiki
+ cp ~/ikiwiki/doc/ikiwiki.setup .
+ cp -r ~/ikiwiki/doc/examples/blog/* .
+ nano ikiwiki.setup
+ # Set destdir to /home/htdocs
+ # Set srcdir to /home/private/wiki
+ # Set url to http://yoursite.nfshost.com/ , set cgiurl likewise
+ # Uncomment the `rcs => "git"` line, and the cgi and git
+ # post-update wrapper blocks.
+ # Set the cgi wrapper path to /home/htdocs/ikiwiki.cgi
+ # Set the git wrapper path to /home/private/wiki.git/hooks/post-update
+ # Configure the rest to your liking and save the file.
+ ikiwiki-makerepo git . ../wiki.git
+ ikiwiki -setup ikiwiki.setup
+* Finally, you can save a _lot_ of disk space by cleaning up the ikiwiki
+ tarball and .cpan directory.
+ rm -rf ~/ikiwiki*.tar.gz ~/.cpan
+
+Have fun and do good things. --[[Joey]]
