Well, if it isn't necessary anymore, why is it done when installing via
make install?

I'm adding the environment variables und NT systems by adding a key to
the registry under HKCU/Environment and on 9x systems by modifying
autoexec.bat. In both cases you have to restart (ok, on NT systems, it's
enough to log out and log in again) to make changes have effect. Their
might be other solution, but I don't know about them.

Did you ever realize how much text fits in eighty columns? If you now consider
that a signature usually consists of up to four lines, this gives you enough
space to spread a tremendous amount of information with your messages. So seize
this opportunity and don't waste your signature with bullshit nobody will read.
