Example #2 includes two {prefix} elements, but they are not referred to 
in the text and are not present in the bash script.

Example #4: personally I want to discourage the use of direct embedding 
of complete commands into the "command" attribute of {configure} and 
{execute}, when the {prefix} and {param} elements are there for a 
reason. For this example, I would like to see the PATH=... prefix 
removed, or just moved into a {prefix} element so it produces the same 
result as example #3 (like the text says and it currently does).
