	So - if you have a Linux system, and you're capable of installing
packages; then most likely you are able to climb the cliff of digging
around to work out how to package them for a different prefix -
right ? :-)

	So - please do try to fix the bug yourself, patches are most welcome.
If you come with some solid research, and some concrete suggestions / a
prototype patch you'll find some helpful feedback.

	This is not a list for reporting random bugs on; of course Tor could
have just pointed him at bugzilla :-) but the reality is that we are
trying to do a lot of work, with very few resources and criticism is
hard to take under those circumstances. Concrete help is much more
appreciated. The "it is easy, you must be a moron" attitude is
-particularly- unhelpful.

	It is far better to do the bit of real work, study, research, code
reading, etc. yourself than write some long mail we all get to read
complaining about the lack of developer time to fix bugs ;-)
