 1) check your configuration with:
 
+   $ autoreconf -i
    $ ./configure
 
    The configure script accepts several options (see ./configure --help).
That's a minimum change to get new users started.
That document describes what users should do when they have downloaded an official release. When building an official release, you do not need to run autoreconf -i. You only need to run autoreconf -i when you download a development version with git or svn. I don't think adding autoreconf -i to this document is a good idea.

Looking at the various documents, I see that README.dev has the advice of running autoreconf -i.
