In its simplest form, coNCePTuaL installation works by executing the following commands at the operating-system prompt:

make install

( configure is normally run as ./configure to force it to run from the current directory on the assumption that . is not in the executable search path.) We now describe those three installation steps in detail, listing a variety of customization options for each step.
