Either say "the configure command", or remove the "the". Right now
it is incorrect. Additionally, because configure is an actual command,
the proper tags would be <command>configure</command>.

Typically we've always used the "/" as the delimiter if there are no other
"/" in the expressions. Using the ";" in this case is confusing to me as
there are 4 of them used above. One is used in &. I would rather use
the more conventional "/".
