## Building from source
+The folowing packages are required: autoconf, automake, libtool, glib2,
+json-glib, bitlbee (names may vary across distros)
+Example for debian-based systems:
+ apt install build-essential autoconf automake libtool libglib2.0-dev libjson-glib-dev bitlbee-dev
Make sure bitlbee and its headers have been installed. If bitlbee came
from the distribution's repository, it will most likely need the
-development package, usually bitlbee-dev.
+development package, like bitlbee-dev in the example above.
If bitlbee was built by hand (or alike via a script), ensure the make
target `install-dev` is invoked. This target is not called by default,
and will install the headers that are needed.
-Do *not* use the source tree headers unless you know what you are
-doing. This can lead to mismatched header versions, which often times
-will lead to bad things.
$ git clone
$ cd bitlbee-facebook
