Though  this rarely happens :-) I'll back up Gerard here. IMHO, bzip2,
as  well  as  vim  (reminds  me  a  of a flame ;) and some others, are
exceptions  which  prove the rule. I can judge from my experience that
the   book  usually  covers  the  installation  and,  if  _necessary_,
_minimal_  configuration, and subtleties are left for the hints, which
are there exactly for that purpose.
