(Enabled mail delivery now.)

I totally redid my howto.  It should now be readable and ("don't make me
think") usable :)  Everybody who is bored can go read my older email in
the archive for the really unimportant remarks I removed from it.
(TODO: abort on error; build log)  It's not yet tested, but I'm running
the included script right now to rebuild everything.

If I read it right, DESTDIR is used when making a package, kind of like
a pseudo chroot.

( OT Question: How do you guys deal with having accounts on tons of
pages, like xorg.freedesktop.org/wiki being one of them?  Is there
anything more usable than (and at least as safe as) KeePassX 0.2.2 +
random passwords on each? )

What I see is outdated/wrong in xorg.freedesktop.org/wiki is:


-> The "Note"

-> The usage notice code block.

Judging from those two, I'd guess those instructions might be valid for
some (outdated) release.  To bring them consistently up-to-date would
require someone to really read through the whole document and check each
instruction for validity.  Doing small patches here and there might lead
to a documentation that doesn't really apply to any release IMHO.
