Yes of course. We would still follow the current method: explain a new command
or construction the first time it occurs then not again. So quite a bit of
chapter 6 is basically ./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install .
Those will most likely end up in a block with a line or two preceding saying
"Install it by runing"
There's no need to rehash the obvious.
