-== Installation ==

+Or install from source:
 
 {{{
-  rake install
+rake install

-Assuming the {{{pg_config}}} program is in your path, your PostgreSQL installation should be detected and the build set up accordingly. 
+You may need to specify the path to the 'pg_config' program installed with
+Postgres:
+
+{{{
+rake -- --with-pg-config=<path to pg_config>
+}}}
+
+For example, on a Mac with PostgreSQL installed via MacPorts 
+({{{port install postgresql84}}}):
+
+{{{
+rake install -- --with-pg-config=/opt/local/lib/postgresql84/bin/pg_config
+}}}
+
+See README.OS_X for more information about installing under MacOS X, and
