** Please note

This file is located at the top of the distribution. The settings are mine by
default, but there are commented out versions for a standard configuration.

** Build Patcher
Type `make' to do that. This builds up the elc and the info files.

Type `make install-pkg' to do that. If you want another kind of installation,
you will have to do that by hand.

You can uninstall the package by typing `make uninstall-pkg'.
You can build the documentation in other formats by typing `make FORMAT' in
the doc/ subdirectory. FORMAT is one of `dvi', `ps', `pdf', `html'. The HTML
