Ahh - possibly not. That sort of thing would help enormously.

However, it never hurts to have some detailed build examples.

I am no coder, and generally can build from source, but setup and more
explanations of more detailed options are never a bad thing.

It took me an inordinately long time to work all this stuff out,

It is often easy to forget how much of a struggle this can be for many.
