    I don't understand why.  In this regard, OS X is Unix.  In other
    words, the quick recipe is what you already see in INSTALL:
        $ ./config
        $ make
        $ make test
        $ make install
    Are you telling me that this isn't understood?
    The only reason why VMS and Windows are mentioned specially, is that
    the commands on those platforms are syntactically different.  Not so
    for OS X.
    But hey, if that helps, we can always do this:
    diff --git a/INSTALL b/INSTALL
    index 52e3f2ae6c..851093ec01 100644
    --- a/INSTALL
    +++ b/INSTALL
