Yes, completely true, for the server anyway. This is something we're
going to have address before 1.0. Hopefully, the packagizing work
people have been doing will make it easier for users on some free
Unixes (FreeBSD, RedHat, Debian).

The client is just a simple

   ./configure
   make
   make install

(The INSTALL file recommends some other flags, but that's only for
during development. For real release, plain ./configure will be
fine.) So if you're referring to the client, we'll need more
details. It shouldn't be hard.

It would be great! Feel like giving that patch a try? :-)
