1) Great to hear. So, although there is not an automatic package install,
it's now pretty easy to install on these platforms (MacOS X and FreeBSD)
2) Interesting glitch with the 'ln' command... I've updated the
documentation to apply also to these less forgiving versions of 'ln'.
3) Maybe I switched from /usr/local to /usr/share... Not sure. That's just
the default location. You could run make (assuming this works on your
make INSTALL_CODE=3D/usr/local install
if you like your old location.
All the best,
