compile from source will look at the various README for instructions
specific to the package. We have three READMEs for the reason that
there are three levels of users of Hamlib, those who want later support
for a radio added since an official release, those willing to test it
on their hardware and provide feedback (betatester) and those of us
crazy enough to open a text editor and start typing (developer). All
three groups overlap to some degree and rather than repeat all of the
information, I'll see about providing references into the other files
There is also the INSTALL file that could be looked at.
