Not necessary unless you want to regenerate the pictures and
examples.  Hmm, this step kind-of relies on GOP 11 git
repositories, which is delayed for 2 weeks.  Growl.

ok, for now maybe make a separate "generating pictures and
examples" section?

I don't think it's worth pointing out that first one at all.  Just
point directly to the second one, since it's built at the same
time anyway.

This is **not** the website.  That's a copy of the "web" manual,
but it's built with a completely different mechanism.

Phil, I may be misremembering.  Do you currently have
directories in your home directory?  I thought that you had that
set up, but if not then we should do that now.  Basically, you
follow the instructions in "initial setup" in CG 6.2, but instead
of uploading those directories to a separate server, you just copy
them on your local computer instead.
