Building from source wasn't my preference either, but there aren't any 
up to date packages available.  Anyhow, I modified the document for my 
own use in case I need to do it again.  If you'd like to exclude it for 
the "compiled from source" reason alone, that's fine with me.  If not, 
and you'd like me to request permission from the original author(s), I 
am happy to do that.

Best regards,

Chris
