Well, compiling is simple enough *if* you have the right tools
installed. Were I to have added those steps, it'd be as simple as:
- cd /Users/username/.elisp/org.git
- type "make"
- type "make doc"

Like I said, though, if you don't have OS X developer tools (gcc)
installed, you won't be able to do "make," and I think that doc might
require LaTeX, but I could be wrong.
