What do they think the documentation is for, inflating the tarball

But, yeah, I don't read docs either, until there's a problem. No
excuse for not skimming through the READMEs and INSTALLs, though.

You might as well cat out manual.txt, then, because if it's not
check_install it's crontab. Or --with[cgi|mail]-gid. Or aliases. No,
perhaps a note at the end of make install saying 'Read the README.
Really. We mean it." would have the same effect.
