+Build instructions
+The build instructions provided in Ruby's master README file are perfectly
+appropriate for Kiji as well. However, at Twitter we're actually linking it
+with [Google's tcmalloc library](
+After you install Google Perftools, you can produce the same binary as we
+use at Twitter with these commands for configuration:
+ export CFLAGS='-O2 -g -Wall -fPIC -fno-builtin-malloc \
+ -fno-builtin-calloc -fno-builtin-realloc -fno-builtin-free \
+ -fno-stack-protector'
+ export LIBS='-ltcmalloc_minimal'
+ ./configure --disable-pthread --disable-shared --disable-ucontext
