    There is no such thing yet.

This is a serious gap; we are asking for trouble (as well as wasting
the time of people who want to help us) if we don't provide this

Perhaps the INSTALL file that we put in the tarball should have a
different name in CVS, perhaps TARBALL-INSTALL, and the INSTALL file
in CVS could give instructions for building from CVS.  make-dist could
then do mv TARBALL-INSTALL INSTALL.  It could also do mv INSTALL
CVS-INSTALL first, so as not to lose that file entirely, if that is

Is it enough to tell people to do `make bootstrap' after running
./configure?  What else do people need to know?
