For the INSTALL file, you may want to update the compile time(s):

make  596.33s user 22.68s system 99% cpu 10:22.74 total
make check  465.83s user 11.77s system 99% cpu 8:01.45 total

this is on
model name      : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3400+
cpu MHz         : 2200.000
cache size      : 512 KB

(Athlon/800MHz is a bit old-ish by now)

Add the AMD64 architecture here:
Known to work with:
 - Linux on x86, Alpha and Sparc using GCC 3.x and 4.0.

after  make install  ginsh fails with
ginsh: error while loading shared libraries: \
 libginac-1.4.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

running  ldconfig  fixes the problem.
So mention that in the INSTALL file:

To install from a source .tar.bz2 distribution:

 $ ./configure
 $ make
 [become root if necessary]
 # make install
 # ldconfig   <--= line added

... or trigger ldconfig with the install target

cheers,   jj
