+Before you install GNUnet, you must download and install the dependencies
+mentioned in the previous section, otherwise the build may succeed, but could
+fail to export some of the tooling required by GNU Taler.
+To install GNUnet, unpack the tarball and change
+into the resulting directory, then proceed as follows:
+.. code-block:: console
+ $ ./configure [--prefix=GNUNETPFX]
+ $ # Each dependency can be fetched from non standard locations via
+ $ # the '--with-<LIBNAME>' option. See './configure --help'.
+ $ make
+ # make install
+ # ldconfig
+If you did not specify a prefix, GNUnet will install to ``/usr/local``,
+which requires you to run the last step as ``root``.
+The ``ldconfig`` command (also run as ``root``) makes the
+shared object libraries (``.so`` files)
+visible to the various installed programs.
