Sure.  But I still think it would be good to show how to setup at
least one such environment -- also for the benefit of having an
environment which works _with_ emacs once it is running (e.g. having
"compatible" diff, grep, and find programs.)

That is good.  Perhaps we could move that link to the place where
you specify that "you need a working development environment".

That would be good.
