Ugh.  I would rather keep the install.html as it is, requiring GNU  
make, than add this instruction, but on the other hand I would love  
to remove the manual dependency on GNU make, and if we do it this way  
this will perhaps encourage someone to help us fix #455, or encourage  
us to fix it ourselves.

Therefore, I am ambivalent on this (in python-dev terms, I would have  
to say that I am +/-1 on this :-)) and I would like to leave it up to  
you how to do this for the 1.3.0 release.
