I'm sorry??????????? Since when did:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/path/to/install/to (plus other options if
you like, as per configure)
become harder? 3 steps vs steps.
You are forgetting one step, the make -f Makefile.svn line, which on some
distros, and with differing versions of automake/autoconf , is required. so
thats 4 steps for autohell.
