+To compile it, run
+	$ ./configure
+	$ make
+	# make install
+Several parameters can be passed to the `configure' script to customize
+the build:
+ --mandir or MANDIR			Where to install man pages
+ --perllib or PERLLIB			Where to install the perl module
+ --prefix or PREFIX			Where to install, /usr/local
+ --realsysconfdir or REALSYSCONFDIR	"Real" sysconfdir
+ --sharedir or SHAREDIR			$PREFIX/share by default
+ --sysconfdir or SYSCONFDIR		/etc
+ --wwwuser or WWWUSER			Name of the user used by msearchd
+and also:
+ CC		The C compiler
+ CFLAGS		Flags for the C compiler
+ LDFLAGS	Flags for the linker
+ PKG_CONFIG	pkg-config program, use `no' or empty to disable usage
+The variables can also be set in the environment for the configure
+script to pick them up.
+The difference between REALSYSCONFDIR and SYSCONFDIR is to accomodate
+the packaging on some systems.  For example, on OpenBSD SYSCONFDIR is
+pointed at /usr/local/share/examples and the port then copies the files
+in /etc, to allow the user to freely change some files and keep edits
+across package updates.
+smarc always installs in SYSCONFDIR but at runtime looks into
