Normally, if I want to compile a program, I ‘less INSTALL’. If I see the line ‘these are generic installation instructions’ I assume no special needs and just start ‘./configure’. This doesn’t work for Glipper. Instead, one has to ‘less README’ to find out the dependencies. I expected those to be in INSTALL. So please think about the contents of those both files.
