updated Running From Source for runtimeconfig

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  From the checkout directory, first perform the `./bootstrap`, `./configure`, and `make`
steps so that everything gets built properly.
  
- Then create a configuration file that you'll use for running CouchDB directly from the source
directory. We'll call it `couch_dev.ini` and drop it directly into the checkout directory,
with the following content:

with the following content: (Note that we have CouchDB running on port 5985, so that it doesn't
conflict with any existing running instance on the standard port.)

  Note that we use relative paths for anything that's in the checkout (such as the static
resources and the Javascript view server). For the database directory and the log file, we're
using a temporary path here, but it could really be anything you'd like.
  
- Now you can fire up an Erlang shell as follows. Do this from the top of the checkout directory
so that the relative paths we put in the configuration file work correctly.

- Here we're adding the source directories `src/couchdb` and `src/mochiweb` to the Erlang
code search path, and we're telling CouchDB to look for the configuration file we created
earlier by using the `-couchini` option.
+ Note the runtime configurations will be written to the last file specified after a `-c`
directive, so if you'd like to write changes back to an ini file, append something like `-c
local_dev.ini` to the above command line.
  
- Now you can run all the CouchDB (and MochiWeb) code from the interactive shell, but you
probably want to actually start CouchDB first:

- To recompile an Erlang source file while CouchDB is running do `c(module_name)`. So to recompile
the `couch_server` module with `c(couch_server)`.
