Quite honstly, i think almost nobody should be installing libraries
from source. Rather, I think people should install the pre-packaged
library from their distribution.

The only exception to the above, is developers actually working on
the library and the hopefully rare cases where a developer needs to
test a bleedign edge version of a library that the distribution
has not yet packaged.

As a library author myself, the only two libraries on my system that
were installed from source are libsndfile and libsamplerate.
