mkdir -p ${HOME}/apps

The script will carry on to build QGIS - it may take a little while to go
and have a cup of your favourite beverage while you wait...
Now we create a build directory and run ccmake:

== Running QGIS ==
cd qgis
mkdir build
ccmake ..

Once the compile is complete it should pop up a page in firefox with unit
test results. At the time of writing the unit tests are just stubs - we
still need to create the test implementations - so dont worry to much about
their output at the moment.
When you run ccmake (note the .. is required!), a menu will appear where
you can configure various aspects of the build. If you do not have root
access or do not want to overwrite existing QGIS installs (by your
packagemanager for example), set the CMAKE_BUILD_PREFIX to somewhere you
have write access to (I usually use /home/timlinux/apps). Now press
'c' to configure, 'e' to dismiss any error messages that may appear.
and 'g' to generate the make files. Note that sometimes 'c' needs to
be pressed several times before the 'g' option becomes available.
After the 'g' generation is complete, press 'q' to exit the ccmake
interactive dialog.

Now on with the build:

make install

It may take a little while to build depending on your platform.

== Running QGIS ==

Now you can try to run QGIS:
