Yes, it's unfortunate that we don't at least have a link from
chapter 8 to 3.6.3.  It could also be useful to have such a link
from somewhere in chapter 9.  A patch for the chapter 8 issue
would be applied quickly (assuming it still compiles).  It might
be good to add a subsection.

A larger question is whether we should keep "3.6 Post-installation
options".  In the first place, the word "options" implies (to me)
something akin to configuration options, not "a list of possible
commands" (which is the meaning used here).  Second, it might be
easier to find relevant material if we just kept 3.6.1 Installing
from a local build, and moved the doc-material to the Doc chapter,
and the regrest material to the Regression chapter.

This is just due to a Critical bug, which will be fixed before
2.14 is out.  This might not occur for another couple of months,
but it's not a permenant thing.
