Well, I already read Lennart's pages and incorporated in nt/INSTALL
everything I thought was worthwhile.  So please suggest specific
refinements, if you think there's more to say.

I didn't suggest to dismiss Kim's gripes.  I'm trying to establish
what should be added to or modified in nt/INSTALL.  I'm not arguing
that it is perfect and should not be changed.

Kim mentioned several additions, like detailed configure and build
instructions and a pointer to Lennart's site, which are already there.
I'm trying to figure out what is NOT there, or what should be reworded
to be more clear.

Do we all agree that instructions to set up a suitable development
environment is the _only_ thing that is currently missing?  Or does
something else Need Work (tm)?
