Good work for the installation script! I've just installed the RC3 from it!

There were one glitch: Couldn't do the MD5 check!... Because your using
"md5" command and on my Slackware9 system, it's "md5sum"!!!
I've just changed md5 by md5sum but it seems that the output is different
because it returns me a bad checksum message... (md5sum returns the
checksum + filename,   maybe md5 returns only the checksum?)

And there's a syntax error in a message (during configure, make or make
install... Don't remember)...

ANd the last: A suggestion... Maybe replacing the Going to... By simply
Compiling: ...
Making: ...
Installing: ...

I don't know why but I'm feeling stressed by the Going to... !!! :D
I know, it's your script after all... Just a comment!
