I would like to suggest that you add a note about
updating the CITY macro for the Makefile.in or
Makefile.am file in the INSTALL file. I read the INSTALL
file and would have built the program without setting
the proper city.

The README file states to update the Makefile. Since
the Makefile is a built object, it probably should not be
modified becasue that change would be lost if the user
runs configure again.

    good point. I have to figure out how this all works with
    autoconf. The cool way to do it would be

    ./configure --city="SAN_FRANCISCO"
