history graphically
- "ssh" is used to push and pull over the net
+
+ - "perl" and POSIX-compliant shells are needed to use most of
+ the barebone Porcelainish scripts.
+
+ - "python" 2.3 or more recent; if you have 2.3, you may need
+ to build with "make WITH_OWN_SUBPROCESS_PY=YesPlease".

+ - Some platform specific issues are dealt with Makefile rules,
+ but depending on your specific installation, you may not
+ have all the libraries/tools needed, or you may have
+ necessary libraries at unusual locations. Please look at the
+ top of the Makefile to see what can be adjusted for your needs.
