+It looks like you don't have a set of C sources rock can bootstrap from.
-So you just checked out the rock git repository and ran `make` to
-get a fancy executable. Nice try, but ...
-rock is a *self-hosting* compiler, ie. it's written in ooc, and we
-use rock to compile rock, and so you also need a rock executable to
-compile rock.
-True, it sounds complicated, but it doesn't have to be. Just go to
- and download the latest
-bootstrap tarball (also called "bootstrap-only" tarball because it only
-contains the bootstrap and nothing else) into your local clone of
-rock. This tarball contains C sources generated by rock for a recent
-version of rock, which can be compiled with only a C compiler.
-Extract, run `make` again. Enjoy.
+Try running `make rescue`, or when everything else fails, get help on IRC
+and/or open an issue here:
