Hi Jeremy,

I'm a bit unsure about what you mean by "the hello program" and "the C
manual", as there is the typical "hello world" program, which is:

    #include <stdio.h>

        printf("hello, world\n");

This program does not need any config.h, so that's probably now what you

Also, there is no single document that is called "the C manual", at
least I'm assuming you don't mean the old documents from the 1970s and
1980s available from http://cm.bell-labs.co/who/dmr/.

so I've installed from the tarball.

What do you mean by "the tarball"?  There are more than a billion .tar
files in the world, so please be more specific by giving the exact URL
where "the tarball" can be downloaded.

Not sure the point of this message
other than maybe letting the people writing the C manual know that as
displayed in their very fine work, it will not compile.

Please also tell us where you got "the C manual" from, preferably using
a URL as well.
