+Building and installing inotail
+To build inotail:
+ $ make
+By default, inotail is installed to /usr/local/bin/, the manpage is installed to
+/usr/local/share/man/. To install the inotail files to these locations:
+ $ make install
+To change these locations just set the prefix variable, e.g. to install the
+inotail binary to /usr/ and the manpage to /usr/share/man/ respectively:
+ $ make prefix=/usr install
