 1) As with the libdrm and xterm instructions, can we go ahead and specify
 an installation prefix, then perhaps explain in the command explanation
 section why you may need to modify it? I just can't help but think that
 in the long run it would be best to specify *something* as the prefix
 and go with it. Doesn't matter what it is, just that it looks like we
 are recommending *something*.

 2) The explanation about the demo programs says they are used to test
 DRI functionality. Actually, however, these programs work fine and can
 be good testing tools if you don't have DRI implemented. Seems they are
 more general programs used to test the GLX extensions.
