+These notes intend to help people working on the GIT version of Pies.
+See end of file for copying conditions.
+* Requirements
+If you have taken the sources from GIT you will need the following
+packages to build Pies. I don't make any extra effort to accommodate
+older versions of these packages, so please make sure that you have the
+latest stable version.
+- Automake <http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/>
+- Autoconf <http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/>
+- Bison <http://www.gnu.org/software/bison/>
+- Flex <http://flex.sourceforge.net/>
+- Gettext <http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/>
+- Gnulib <http://www.gnu.org/software/gnulib/>
+- M4 <http://www.gnu.org/software/m4/>
+- Rsync <http://samba.anu.edu.au/rsync/>
+- Texinfo <http://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo>
+* Bootstrapping
+Obviously, if you are reading these notes, you did manage to check out
+the project from GIT. The next step is to get other files needed to build,
+which are extracted from other source packages:
+1. Change to the source tree directory
+ cd pies
+2. Run
+ ./bootstrap
+Once done, proceed as described in the file README (section
+Normally you will have to run bootstrap only once. However, if you
+intend to hack on Pies, you might need to run it again later. In
+this case, you will probably want to save some time and bandwidth by
+avoiding downloading the same files again. If so, create in the
+project's root directory the file named `.bootstrap' with the following
+ --gnulib-srcdir=$HOME/gnulib
+Replace `$HOME/gnulib' with the actual directory where the Gnulib
+sources reside.
+If you wish to avoid synchronising translations, add this option:
+For more information about `bootstrap', run `bootstrap --help'.
