Subject Re: build from source instructions

+1 on fully automated scripts being more confusing than helpful. It's difficult to debug any
issues when the entire instruction is to run a single script. - Sina

    Aaron,
    
    I agree the installation page is very confusing to me. When I first tried
    to build MXNet from source on MacOS, I was totally confused about the
    instruction. Why was it vastly different from building from source on Linux
    given these two OS have similar shell commands. I feel the automatic
    scripts on MacOS platform is rather confusing than simplifying.
