Building from a tar.gz file
---------------------------
  Run ./configure, with some options if you wish. The standard options
  are documented in the INSTALL file.  The only interesting ones are
  the usual --prefix=/usr, --localstatedir=/var and --sysconfdir=/etc

  Do "make", and then do "make install" (possibly as root if the
  destination permissions require that).

  That's all.


Building from the repository
----------------------------
  Check out the code from SVN, following the instructions at:

    http://svn.cherokee-project.com/

  cd into the source directory and run ./autogen.sh to setup the
  environment (you need the standard autoconf tools to do so).

  Then, continue with the following instructions...
