Yes, I install it very early on - way before X so this should be pointed 
out somewhere that is "obvious". The Command Explanation section has 
bugged me before and I have mentioned it too. Because *all* the command 
explanations (including the *optional* ones) are documented after the 
build process in the book, on many occasions I have missed out on the 
optional nuggets-of-gold and had to redo the build from the top again...

I can understand why it is where it is in the book's order but it does 
bug me. A bit.
