[tahoe-dev] change install.html to use setup.py instead of Make?

Brian, Chris Galvan, anyone else:


Currently says that you should install g++, Python, and GNU Make, run  
"make", run "make test", and then run "bin/tahoe".

I'm not sure, but I think that some of the recent improvements  
contributed by Brian and Chris have made it so that we are close to  
removing GNU Make from the list of dependencies, so that the  
instructions will say that you should install g++ and Python, run  
"python setup.py build", and "python setup.py test", and then run  

Is that true?

Either way, would you either remove my optimistic note in  
install.html saying that we can stop requiring GNU Make, or else make  
it true?  :-)
