I think APACI is a great start too, but there's a lot that people will be
asking for, such as interactive prompts for basic configuration things
rather than all command-line switches and defaults.  In my opinion, it is
easier to edit a file (with embedded comments giving me advice on what to
do) to tell it which modules to include and the like, rather than doing the
"short cut" and then not realizing there were other switches I could have
given configure to get what I wanted (speaking as a new user might).

I'm going to take a stab at editing the INSTALL files in ./ and ./src/,
just to make it a little clearer that both methods are supported and why
one might want to use one over another.
